Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

I'm using many of NORTON Products for years and decade of years (it think it starts for me in the early 90's - maybe late at the end of 80's?! I'm not sure exactly). From the first day - the first installation (for "mummy" ;-)) and until this, i had recommended -at least for hundreds of clients, customers, friends and relatives- at your AV-Protection as THE solution! I had installed, adjusted and explained many, many, many people, followed by hundreds of hours for support and questions until that time.

In the last month, many of this people asked me for removing your "Norton Safe Search" -Option (a nice an important feature, but - really: a lot of them), because the new startpage changed there "well known" and "beloved" way of internet using so hardly, that they will back there old startpages. Also under the costs of protection.

Some of them (not really many) accept that this step is an important part for there security and a secure surfing. But those users, with an better technical understanding, rightly asked: "WHY? Because, if they used there beloved Google, Yahoo or Bing, they had also exact the same protection Information, because the results from Google, BING and Yahoo (also many other search engines) result are also shown with the green or red "Norton Safe Webs Check"-Buttons - and they are right.

In addition of this: i'd also get many questions about this shown "Quick-Links" under the Safe Search Startpage. Many of them asked how they can change it. Some of them asked for adding there T-Online-, Gmail- or other eMail-Hosters Webpage, others of them needs there Bank- or Stock- Services and many other beloved stuff.

No question! A lot of them could be solved by Bookmarks, some users solved it by a Desktop-Icon to those URLs - but it is "still not there Startpage" and imho (in my humbly opinion) is this an effect where to much users stopped the safe search AddOn, just to get back there beloved startpages.

I had asked here (at the community) and in some other Boards too for many times before - and never get an feedback from SYMANTEC, why they can't add a feature to edit this Quick-Links?! Maybe, with as options to set there own startpage, maybe with some editable URLs to change it into personal URLs, maybe all together and maybe as an payable feature (for lost income of no more Marketing-Links) for small money?! BUT EDITABLE.

So - my Question to all other readers, users and searchers, who read this:

Please,
if you like to get also "editable Options" for your Norton Safe Search Startpage "Quick-Links":

  • register here (if still not)
    and
  • vote on top of this article as "me too" (in german: "Ich auch")
    and
  • stay tuned and see what happend with this Suggestion
    - maybe, leave your own comments about your thoughts and opinions

So, another Sunday lost and i hope it would be worthy. I have taken much trouble to show what concerns me here and really would be a relief. Let's hope it another that is worth.

At the end: sorry for my lousy English! But i hope it was good enough to show you what i mean and to motivate some others to think about an solution. I'm for sure, that many system are more secure, if those user never need to stop this AddOn at his browsers (or at least "came back" to Norton protections).

Last, but not least: a good chance to say THANKS to all NORTON employees and developers for a good done job and for years over years on my personal protection against many hazards page, attacks and bad scripts. I'm for sure, that NORTON is still one of the best solutions in kind of your well done work - and i don't get tired, to be happy and recommend your Protection and will help out at installations and explanation on them for the next years too. Hopefully with some "editable Quick-Links" at the startpage under Norton Safe Search ;-)

Re: Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

I go on certain lines to do my shopping, which are not in these Quick-Links, so I would like to be able to keep but change these Quick-Links to different ones that I DO use on a weekly or monthly basis (sometimes even daily). I do use several of the ones already on there, but several of them are useless to me so I see from the point "Why keep them"?

Re: Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

I would also very much like to be able to delete and/or add quick links as many of them are not applicable to my daily use and I would like to have quick one-click access to others. This seems to be an update that would please many users and help retain some who are unhappy with the present situation.

I would too. I don't want anything that you need to go into registry for.

Re: Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

I just spent hours figuring out how to remove some of the sites from the Quick Link bar only to learn that once I exited Internet Explorer and came back in, the bar returned to its previous state - fully loaded.  My bar consists of 11 different icons (sites), of which only 3 do I use.  Anyway, I would LOVE the ability to be able to change this bar otherwise it's of no use to me and what's there can go right in my Favorite's Bar above!

So Norton, either fix it or get rid of it.  It's useless to me as it is, and annoying as well.

Re: Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

The links are very America based and I live in Europe   .
A part from that, I think more people would like to be able to change the quick links to the sites they use every single day.

At best it would work somewhat like the tiles of Windows 10 or the list of 8 favorites on the startscreen of Chrome, but maybe just a little bit more easy to adjust. Please

I very much agree with the comments above. So grab the oppertunity to make something beautiful and handy out of this annoying siding.

Re: Norton Safe Search needs editable Quick-Links

OK So people have been asking for this since 2011? Norton, get this fixed. It's terrible that Quicklinks can't be edited.

I would like to delete or edit some QUICK LINKS and add other QUICK LINKS as needed to the QUICK LINKS on the Firefox most recent Home page
