LXer: Firefox and Norton: FIGHT!


Published at LXer:

Firefox 3.0.1 has been around for months, Norton 360 2.0 and Internet Security 2008 ditto. For many users, however, it would appear that the two cannot live happily together. So just what is the problem?

So they are blaming Firefox when they haven't upgraded their own systems? Why would the FF team be at fault? They can't possibly test FF against every single combination of software out there. If you choose to buy your PC security when there are many no charge options out there, you should also take the responsibility for upgrading it. If you don't feel you should have to pay each time an upgrade comes out, change your security option. It's not rocket surgery!

I remember when the Norton Utilities were really great. And then Windows 95 came along...
