How to *permanently* disable Firefox Safe Mode option?

I use LeechBlock to limit my time usage for certain sites, but my self control is pathetic to the point where I automatically, and very quickly end up opening Firefox in safe mode (where LeechBlock is disabled, and all sites work). Thus I am wondering if there is a way to *permanently* disable the safe mode option in firefox. I know that in case something goes goofy with firefox, I will probably have to reinstall, but that isn't too big a deal because I backup my profile regularly.

Of course solving this won't 100% get me working, but it would definately make it a much bigger ordeal to bypass LeechBlock.

Thanks to anyone who can help me (except for hypnotists - I'm not at that point yet!)!

When I try to download a software up date for another program in Binary File (eg. C Cleaner or a Microsoft file) in Firefox they all just come up in the download window as 'Canceled'? When I go to the destination folder the download file icon is there with 0 Kb's for size...Then when I click 'RETRY' the download it appears to download fully, but when I go into the destination folder the downloaded file is not there? I need to know if there is something in the Firefox options to resolve this problem or much more!!

I would like to know if FIREFOX allows keys to be remapped. I want to be able to make the F1 key paste my email address into a textbox on a website to make it easier to type stuff. I have seen other programs that allow you to "remap" the keyboard and I wanted to know if FIREFOX allows this or not?
