Safe Mode is a special Firefox mode that can be used to troubleshoot and fix problems. Safe Mode temporarily resets some settings and disables add-ons that might be causing problems. By comparing Firefox behavior in normal mode to its behavior in Safe Mode you may be able to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Note: Windows users may be familiar with a Safe Mode for Windows. Firefox Safe Mode has no connection to Windows Safe Mode.
Note: The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Consider using it before going through a lengthy troubleshooting process.

Warning: When you make these changes and restart Firefox, they will remain in effect from that point on, unless you take additional steps to undo them. Some changes cannot be undone.
  • Disable all add-ons: If you select this box and then click Make Changes and Restart then Firefox will start back up in its normal mode, except all your extensions, themes and plugins will be disabled (not uninstalled). To undo the change, you will need to enable each extension and plugin listed in the Add-ons Manager. See this article if you need more help enabling your add-ons.
  • Reset toolbars and controls: If you select this box and then click Make Changes and Restart then Firefox will start back up in its normal mode, except any toolbar customizations you have made will be lost, such as position of buttons and toolbars. If you later want to undo this change, you will need to add back those customizations. See Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars for more help.
  • Delete all bookmarks except for backups: If you select this box and then click Make Changes and Restart then Firefox will delete your current bookmarks and replace them with the default set. If you later want to undo the change, you will need to restore your bookmarks from backup. See Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer for more help.
  • Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults: If you select this box and then click Make Changes and Restart then all Firefox options and preferences will be set back to the default settings, and any changes you made to them will be undone. This change will be hard to undo, since you may not remember all of the settings you have changed.
