"It" being Norton?

Norton Security will bug you to install Norton Safe Web extension.  Do you have that extension installed in Firefox?

Re: Norton UI shows at risk

Hello mike zorro,

To fix the Internet Security/Browsing at Risk alert:

If you wish to install the suggested browser extensions, doing so will cancel the alert.

If you do not wish to install the browser extensions:

  • Open the main UI
  • If not already open, click the Internet Security tile
  • Under the “Fix Now” button, click “Why fix this?

  • In the Browsing at Risk window, click “Options” and then click “Ignore Risk

  • That will cancel the alert and return the green checkmark to the Norton system tray icon.
  • The Internet Security tile will remain grayed out.

  • Restart the computer if the alert does not disappear.

*This procedure disables the added security layers of browser extensions. However, it may be a necessary trade-off if the extensions bog down your browser.

**Subsequent product version updates may require you to repeat this procedure.

Thank you @Phil_D.  I wasn't aware of the method to ignore that "At Risk" message.
