I have the same problem. However I have additional information to provide.
When I upgraded to Firefox 14.0.1 I ran live update. This told me - as I expected - that a reboot was required. Unfortunately the reboot failed rather spectacularly. The subsequent attempt at windows repair also failed. However when I powered off and on, it rebooted just fine - but to a version of Windows before the most recent Microsoft security patches. It also reverted to the previous version of Firefox. I have managed to bring the PC back up to date, but now the Norton toolbar remains disabled in Firefox, and live update doesn't offer a new version. Neither does Firefox offer an option to remove the Norton toolbar so that I can get Norton Internet Security to reinstate it.
Now all of this may be irrelevant, but the fact remains that I have now lost the Norton toolbar and can't see a way of getting it back that doesn't require geek-type knowledge of Firefox.
On previous occasions when there were issues you have released a hotfix. Is there a link to a downloadable version of toolbar version 2012.7.4.1 (which I understand is the one required) please?

When you say the reboot failed after live update - did you get any windows BSOD issue(blue screen)? Is your OS - XP? If yes, just go through this link where we have a given a fix for this issue.
Once you are done with the workaround please try running Norton live update and Firefox update to 14.0.1. Let us know how it goes.

Too late for your solution, but yes, it did report a blue screen when I finally got it working.
The solution was to uninstall NIS retaining settings and reinstall it. A pain, involving several reboots, but now it works again.
I think that the original failed reboot had corrupted NIS, as Norton Vulnerability Protection was showing the new version, but Norton Toolbar was showing the old version.
Thanks for the reply - apparently I forgot to subscribe to the thread so I have only just seen your reply.
