After updating Firefox, it wants to start in safe mode, when you click reset & restart it starts and runs fine, how do I make it stop opening in safe mode?

Posted

I recently updated my Firefox to 3.5.9 for Google pack, after doing so Firefox would only open in safe mode. So I started in safe mode that one time. Everafter, when starting firefox it always opens a dialog window about safe mode, I click the option to reset the toolbars and restart, and it starts normally. I'd like to make it stop opening with this dialog, and just open normally without asking about safe mode.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I updated Firefox
