Accidentally quitting Firefox [by typing Q when I only meant to close its open window with W] always puts Firefox into 'permanent' safe mode -- and restarting the Mac doesn't get it out of safe mode. Nothing works but opening Time Machine and replacing my user profile with an older one! Most annoying.

This happened

A few times a week

== With Firefox 3.6.3
