    One big thing this article has always failed to do which has been made painfully clear by its new title is that it doesn't explain what to do once you get into safe mode. It only briefly mentions in the into that you need to compare the behavior in safe mode to that of normal mode.

    I created new revisions that make this clear by:

    1. New introduction that is a little more clear and is true for all versions of the article.
    2. Added a "Troubleshooting problems in Safe Mode" based on the similar section in Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems
    3. For version <15 I moved the information about making permanent changes to its own section since that is really an extra, separate process that is not troubleshooting.
