Windows 7: Firefox 31 and Norton Safe Site

Firefox 31 and Norton Safe Site

As of a day ago if you update to Firefox 31 then I and others report losing Norton Safe Site icons. If you are a Norton user I wouldn't update until the issue is resolved.
If anyone knows the problem has been fixed I'll tick the problem resolved.

It's a Norton issue, they are at least acknowledging it, and "working on it"

I did a very recent system image restore which had V 30 and the safe site icons returned. I accidentally had auto update on - now it's on let me decide. Firefox keeps nagging me to update. I really should give Chrome a go.

Try Pale Moon. It will use all your Firefox addons, and is lighter then Firefox. A Guy

It's at bit ironic Norton provides a caution warning for the Pale Moon site
