Add Safe Search/Identity Safe to another Firefox Profile win10

I am using Firefox 47.0 with multiple profiles on a computer with win10.  Chat Support added Safe Search to one profile, and I would like to add it to other profiles on this and other win 10 computers. After Safe Search was added Tools>Add-ons lists Norton Identity Safe 2016.7.062, so I assume I need to add it to other profiles.  How do I proceed?

I am assuming Identity Safe is the current name for safe search.  Is this correct?

A little off-topic, but how would I add the Norton Toolbar?

Re: Add Safe Search/Identity Safe to another Firefox Profile win10

FWIW ~ when I create a new Firefox profile.  Norton Identity Safe is with Firefox Add-ons > Extensions. Norton Identity Safe is current name for Norton Firefox extension.
Norton wants users to think browser "extension" vs Toolbar. 
Note: Norton Identity Safe (Toolbar) is limited function at this time. 
Identity Safe limited compatibility with Firefox - current status

Note: Norton Chrome extensions come via Chrome webstore and Norton is working on new browser extension to support Edge, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.
Note: check Firefox > Tools > Options > Search > you should be able to add Norton Safe Search to Firefox One-click search engines.

Thanks for the info.  I see the situation now. Extensions was pre-selected on the profile that had Identity Safe "activated", so Identity save was immediately visible.  The top link, Get add-ons, was pre-selected on the other profiles.

I notice that if Identity-Safe is used,  open tabs are automatically closed when using File>Exit, .  Too bad.  I guess that is one of the compatibility problems.   Have you noticed it, too?

I checked the link, but it was not much help.  Norton said they were working on it, and users complaining that the problems have not been resolved.

I've had Norton Firefox extension disabled since 2014.

For those who are still new to Norton Safe Search, you can review the following screenshot.

Norton has teamed up with Ask.com to provide you with a safer search experience! 

And, you, of course, choose "No thanks" if you do not like the traditional ask com search and/or other clones of APN bar, such as MindSpark.
