It's sad users are subjected to legalese and spyware has become the accepted norm among 'free and proprietary' services. If this were some random add-on developed by some nobody it would have been appropriately removed from mozilla services.
Protip: Firefox already has Google Safebrowsing for malware. All you really need is to block ads and malware domains with Ublock add-on and scan files with the virustotal website. If you still need this add-on, maybe you should reconsider your browsing habits.
- by Firefox user 13966945, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I have used Norton/Symantec products for years and am very pleased with them. I have never had to deal with a virus infection in all of those years.
- by Tacsipacsi, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Great add-on for security, but still inferior to the legacy version at some fields:
– Blocks malicious websites a bit late (I believe that it’s a restriction of the WebExtension technology), and every time during a browsing session, i.e. even if I just accepted the danger and click on an internal link on the page (this can be fixed).
– Still not marking safe and malicious websites in Google search results, but asks me time to time to set Norton Safe Search as the default search engine. I don’t want to use that awful piece of software, I want to use Google or Bing or whatever I’m used to, with the little badges by the Norton extension. It’s not that hard to achieve even with WebExtensions.
– I don’t remember how it worked before, but when the extension thinks that a download is malicious, I can’t download it. If I know that the extension is wrong, I have to disable it to get the file downloaded.
- by Firefox user 12917464, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5I just compared this Norton addon with the Bitdefender Trafficlight addon on the AMTSO test site and Norton was much more effective, it basically blocked everything, unlike Bitdefender Trafficlight. This Norton addon is an important extra layer of defence agains malware and viruses when you browse the web.
- by Ninjaclanginger, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Was running perfectly but suddenly over the last few weeks a yellow bar flashes up for a split second. I have finally been able to grab a screen shot to see what it says and its this Norton Extension. It was fine but now its not. Other reviews point towards some update in December as being the fault. no good Norton!
