Another Note:

This patch is necessary to prepare your Norton 2012 Product for the upcoming Firefox 7 compatibility update that we will release to Norton Products at a future date.

Same here, I've just upgraded to 2012 a few hours before getting this update. All I can say is - Symantec seems to be the standard for streamlined, fast and efficient upgrade, I know now they've spoiled me badly in my future expectations of what an upgrade process should be :). Downloaded the full 2012 installer [110 MB] in about 5 minutes, another 3 to install - wow!
Then updated to - running smooth.
