Start Firefox in Safe Mode

Ever wanted to know how to start Firefox in Safe Mode? The Safe Mode in Firefox is a special mode that is usually used to help troubleshoot or fix problems with the browser.  It resets some settings and disabled any extra things you have downloaded – like add-ons and themes.

So, there are two ways to start Firefox in safe mode.  Here is the one most people use:

At the top of the Firefox window, click the Firefox button, go over to the Help menu and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled…. Firefox will start up with the Firefox Safe Mode dialog.

So what is the other way? Well, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode by holding down the shift key while starting Firefox.  To go back to your regular Firefox – simple close out or restart Firefox again and that should take you out of Firefox’s Safe Mode.
