Windows 7: Firefox - Prevent "Safe Mode Window" from appearing

Firefox - Prevent "Safe Mode Window" from appearing

Hello. Whenever I start Firefox in Safe Mode, a window box will appear, that reads: "Firefox is now running in Safe Mode..", along with options to disable my add-ons and so forth. Is there a way I can permanently prevent this window from appearing, whenever I run Safe Mode? Googling only seems to find me methods on disabling Safe Mode, which is not the point. Thanks!

Hi! jacknicholson, welcome to 7f

Did some research, and I could not find anything on your subject either.
Best guess is no one at Mozilla ever thought that anyone would need to enter safe mode without making 'some' kind of change.

I even looked in, about:config and could not find any entry that might relate to turning off and/or bypassing that options/dialog box.

Do not know how long it would take to get an answer, but you could always make a bug report at
