Mozilla Firefox's Safe Mode is unrelated but similar to Window's Safe Mode. When in Firefox Safe Mode, your extensions, themes and plug-ins are disabled. This allows you to easily diagnose problems that may be related to an installed feature. Once you're finished in Safe Mode, you'll want to turn it off or exit it. Exiting Safe Mode is simple, but additional work may be required if the browser will not reopen in its normal state.

- Computer using the Firefox browser
Click "File" on the top menu bar, then click "Exit" to exit Firefox Safe Mode.
Double-click on your Firefox icon to open Firefox. The browser should be in its normal state. If it's not, restart your computer and then check it again. If Firefox is still in Safe Mode, continue to diagnose the problem.
Right-click on the program icon you use to open Firefox. Select "Properties" from the list to bring up the Properties dialogue box. Click on "Shortcut."
Examine the box labelled "Target." The destination file should read "Firefox.exe." If your icon is set to automatically open in Safe Mode, the destination file will read "-safe-mode." Delete this portion of the destination, so the end only reads "Firefox.exe." Start the browser; it should open normally.
