Norton Safe Search makes my blood boil!!!!!!

I can only say that, as an IT decision maker for a major retailer, there is NO WAY I will use Norton's for my end point security as you choose to take more control of my machine than I want.  I DO NOT WAT TO SEE YOUR 'SAFE SEARCH' WINDOW!!!!!!!!

I have turned this off through the back door on Mozilla several times and it keeps coming back.  Norton's does not give an option to tick to say 'don't do this' they just force you to take their search.  I WILL NOT BE INSTALLING THIS IN MY CURRENT ROLE OR ANY FUTURE ROLES IF YOU CANNOT GIVE ME AN EASY ANSWER ON HOW TO TURN IT OFF AND LEAVE IT OFF.

Norton's, I am paying you money, tell me how to get rid of it?

Thanks

Keith

So your in the computer business and you don't know how to turn off or remove an extension from Firefox? Interesting. Remove Norton toolbar or disable safe search. It's that easy. You don't need the toolbar to still have Norton protection. You can also turn it off in the Norton settings

On the Norton Toolbar click the three dots and turn off Safe Search. No need for any back door.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

@Keith:

To be precise, Norton Safe Search is an optional service. Turning it off does not affect your online security. BUT, uninstalling Norton Security Toolbar can decrease your web security.

For more info, you may review the following pages:

The Norton Security toolbar warns you of dangerous sites when you browse online, helping to protect you from identity theft and online scams.

Norton is still protecting your PC. Only the web filtering is gone.
