Why does it take so long for the "(Downloaded) File is Safe" popup to appear?
When I download a file, such as an executable, I get a popup in the lower right from Norton telling me the file is safe (or, far less frequently, that it isn't). But it seems like this is a slow process, and getting slower. Even for very common, widely used files, the popup doesn't appear for minutes -- maybe as long as 4 or 5 minutes in some cases (though I haven't actually timed it). In fact, it's not uncommon for me to have already installed something before the popup appears to tell me the executable is safe.
Is this normal? Have others had a similar experience? My browser, which most files are downloaded with, is Firefox 52.7.4esr. Thanks.
