    The Norton safe Search toolbar has suddenly disappeared from Firefox and when I click:-

    Tools -> Add-ons

    It lists the add-ons but under "Norton Toolbar", the link is not clickable and it says "Not compatible with Firefox 3.6.18" and I upgraded to the latest Firefox and it still is not compatible, WHY?

    Yet it is still compatible with Internet Explorer.

    What is wrong with this and how can I make it compatible with Firefox again?

    When Firefox upgrades, the people who make the add-ons (in this case Symantec/Norton) need to update their add-ons to reflect this; presumably they haven't yet.

    Although I would just ask if you could do without the toolbar? :p:

    Yes and no.

    So if God willing Symantec do update their add-ons will it become compatible again? It is suddenly no longer compatible with ANY versions of Firefox 3.6, is it compatible with Firefox 11 or whatever?

    Last week, the add-on suddenly became compatible again but this morning all of a sudden I get the pop-up "1 new add-n extension has been added" or something like that and Norton toolbar is "not compatible with Firefox 3.6.28" again. Why? What the **** is going on and why can't it be compatible?
