Browser protection does not allow me undo Norton as home page

I had selected to have Norton browser protection in Firefox but I don't want Norton Search to be my home page or my search engine. I tried changing Firefox options but when I leave Firefox and come back Norton Search is again the home page and search engine has defaulted to Norton. I like having Norton tell me when a website is safe but I prefer the Google engine. I can change the home page and search engin temporarily with Firefox Options but when I leave and come back to Firefox  they default to Norton.

I tried going to Norton's Toolbar Configuration page to undo it there but it only allows you to add Norton as home page and search engine but not to undo it. Any suggestions?
