How to Get Mozilla Firefox Out of Safe Mode


If your computer locks up or your browser freezes, Mozilla Firefox may have to be started again in Safe Mode. Then you'll want to get it out of Safe Mode. Follow these tips to get Mozilla Firefox out of Safe Mode and utilize all of Firefox's features in surfing the Internet.

  • Exit your Firefox browser if it's open. Close all windows. If Firefox is stuck, visit your Task Manager, click on Firefox and select "End Task."

  • Locate the Firefox shortcut on your computer's desktop. Right-click on the shortcut and select "Properties."

  • Click on the "Shortcut" tab. Find the "Target" field. Look at the target path and find the phrase "-safe-mode" at the end of it. (If the Firefox path doesn't have the "-safe-mode" extension at the end of it, you are currently running Firefox out of safe mode.)

  • Position your cursor so that it is to the right of the "e" in "mode." Delete all of the characters in the "-safe-mode" part of the path so that the path ends with "exe."

  • Select "Apply" and "OK."

  • Restart Firefox and enjoy it out of safe mode.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have installed Firefox into its default directory, the path should look like ""C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe," including the quotation marks.
  • If "-safe-mode" appears anywhere else in the "Shortcut" tab, delete it, too.
  • Do not delete the quotation marks surrounding the path.
