Details

Support tells us that some people upgrading to Firefox 4 lose their Norton Toolbar and are sadfaces. This might delay our ability to do an advertised major update.
Related to that (and worse) is that if you run Norton IPS, I think you lose your saved passwords.

Trying to look for details.
Next time we should try to do some early-release builds. We could call them "betas" and perhaps have 12 of them...just a crazy thought to make it so these new versions don't sneak up on vendors /snark.

To add some background about why this has occurred (and hopefully highlight how to prevent further issues going forward), a Symantec employee's response from within the growing thread on FF4 compatibility:

Yeah, that comment was made in bad taste without acknowledging the inherent intricacies...apologies.
"Product Update - 18.6.0.29 for Norton Internet Security 2011 and Norton AntiVirus 2011 (May 2nd, 2011) - ENGLISH ONLY"
- Added Firefox 4 Support

(The patch is currently available to ENGLISH users ONLY. We will be releasing the patches in other regions soon.)

"Regarding #2 above, the patch is now generally available. Run LiveUpdate to receive this patch." 

I think we can safely resolve this as FIXED. :)
