Firefox Cleanup settings

I've noticed that Firefox Cleanup settings (cleaning temp files and history) becomes unavailable when FF x64 installed. With x86 I can modify them anytime, but with x64 I can't. Who can confirm this issue?

Hmm, so FFx64 is reason for grey switches.  Who knew?  Thanks.

I've asked Support in Chat yesterday and they told me that this Cleunup works with both x32 and x64, so maybe it really works, but it means that you can't change this settings for x64 even if it work with it. I have to wrote them again and ask to fix it... Thanks for info.

Yeah, grey may mean works for support.  Grey means I cannot toggle switches.... so, grey means does not work for me.  Let us know.  Thanks.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

The settings in Firefox pertaining to clearing history are inter-connected with the Norton Firefox Cleanup settings.  Make sure that you haven't configured the options in Firefox in such a way that they disable the Norton settings:

Okay, so as long as Firefox setup rules.  No worries re grey switches. I'd like to set Norton switches Off.   My preference is for Norton to get out of the tune-up business.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

I don't want to choose wich cleanup is better to use. I want to use both of them. If it work with FF x86 it definitely should work with x64 also. I wrote in Chat now and this issue is under consideration of the development team already, so I hope it will be fixed soon.

Turning off the Norton switches also turns off the Firefox settings.  They both control the same settings in Firefox.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

I don't see it now with my x86. If I disable this settings in Norton, FF cleanup is still On. The same thing with IE - I can use both this cleanings (IE cleanup and Norton's).

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

Yep, I agree with you. They should be separated so as Norton don't disable something in browser settings and I can use both if them. But I think also that Norton should have it's own cleanup with working settings (not gray as with x64 now) for both x86 and x64 of course.

So that's why I created this topic and wrote in Support I used x64 before, now I use x86, just because these settings are unavailable now with x64.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

For the longest time there was no support for 64 bit browsers. Maybe others can find the announcement that I cannot, but there was an announcement about 64 bit browser support. Not sure if Firefox 64 bit was included.

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

Norton does not control Firefox Phishing and Malware Protection.  Firefox Cleanup is only concerned with browser history.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

I think there is no connection now between Norton cleanup and Firefox cleanup. I can disable it in Norton and it will be enabled in FF (as it was), also if I enable FF cleanup, Norton cleanup settings stays the same (as they was too). And that's good thing, I don't want this connection between them and I believe that they should be separated.

Re: Firefox Cleanup settings

@Vitalik93:

I did the below tests:

1. 64 Win7 + FF 64 (v45) + NS: FF Cleanup, disabled.

2. 64 Win7 + FF 32 (v50) + NS (newest): GREEN 

3. 64 Win7 + FF 64 (v50) + NS (newest): grayed.

You may consider using 32-bit FF instead, as a workaround.

I've asked (Norton) Support in Chat yesterday and they told me that this Cleunup works with both x32 and x64, so maybe it really works
