How to get Firefox IE out of Safe Mode

by Maiyan820 / September 18, 2008 12:28 AM PDT

Hi there, guys. It is Maiyan820 here. I have a problem. When I open my Firefox Explorer there is a page that says: "Firefox is now in Safe Mode, which temporarily disables your custom settings, themes and extensions" I know the above is a legitimate page, becuase a guy who knows PC's very well made a language setting adjustment on my PC and I think he actually asked me if I want Firefox to run in Safe Mode, to which I said yes, simply because it sounded good to one like me whose knowledge of the inner workings of a PC is actually quite shocking. This has nothing to do with malware, because I have the very best Internet Security. My question is: "How do I get the explorer out of this "Safe Mode" again? I want it out, because I can not install any add-ons to the browser (which is something I want to do now) in this mode. Can someone please type out a clear path to the solution for me. I will so appreciate it! My PC's operating system is the Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.
Respectfully yours,
Maiyan Viljoen.

Just where to look

Reading I see you can evoke this if your shortcut has that command. Also look at the end of that article to see how to troubleshoot FireFox.

Just so you know

Just so you know, Firefox and IE are two different programs. Firefox and Explorer are also two different programs. IE and Explorer are technically two different programs, though the distinction has been blurred quite a bit recently.

So if asking a question, it's important to make the distinction between different programs. It just saves people from either making the wrong assumption about what you're asking, or wasting time asking you to clarify if you mean Firefox or IE.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
