How to Disable Safe Mode in Firefox

Posted

Hi! I am looking to disable the option to start Firefox in safe mode, as it bypasses the extensions I have installed that I want to be customizing my Firefox experience constantly without my will to end them (as I have an Internet addiction problem). I have seen previous threads that describe how to disable safe mode (such as the one below), but I do not have the capacity to understand the computer jargon. Please help me remove the possibility of starting Firefox in safe mode--thank you!

You can use a policy to achieve this. See DisableSafeMode: *https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md See also: *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson

Question owner

Dear cor-el, Thank you for your reply! It is very helpful, and I know that I am not far from completing this! The only problem is that for some reason I do not have "Mozilla" under "Administrative Templates," so I would either have to create these files (which I don't think will work on its own) or somehow otherwise copy/paste/secure them. Would you know how I can go about doing this? Thank you for your continued help!

You can use a policies.json file in the profile folder.
