How do you disable safemode in FireFox? 

by on October 4, 2010

Q: I am trying to figure out how to disable safe mode on Firefox to prevent browsing. I have an app to prevent it when not in safe mode. I think I found a solution, but don’t know how to perform it. If I could get a step by step answer, it would be greatly appreciated. I found the following when trying to find an answer.

“I used 7z to extract from the browser.jar file to files called Safemode.js & SafeMode.xul. I then used skpet to make the (cancel) option the only one, so safe mode can never run.”

the part above was an extract from the link below.

If there is by chance a different way or easier way of doing it, then I’ll take any advice.

by on August 2, 2010

I’m on Mac OS 10.6.4, Firefox is up to date, I have NO extensions, whatever they are, and I changed my home page to make sure that wasn’t affecting it. Now what?? It’s driving me crazy.

Stop FireFox from crashing 

by on February 21, 2010

Q: I use FireFox for everything and have all my important bookmarks stored in it. My problem is it is very unstable and keeps crashing. I make sure I upgrade to the latest version right when it comes out but I still have problems. How come FireFox keeps crashing on me?

A: FireFox is a stable web browser that many people around the world rely on. The primary reason FireFox would be unstable is because there is an unstable extension installed. You can see all extensions installed in FireFox by going to Tools -> Add-Ons and then clicking the Extensions button/tab. You should disable all the extensions and make sure FireFox is stable and then from there slowly enable the extensions that you need. A good cleanup might be in order too so delete any extensions that you don’t need.
