-safe-mode command argument to firefox does not disable add-ons (extensions)

Bug Description

The command "firefox -safe-mode" should start firefox (bon echo beta 2 1.99+2.0b2+dfsg-1ubuntu2) with extensions disabled.

Instead, extensions are still enabled as evidenced by their additional icons and such appearing in the context menus.

Thanks for your bug report. I am afraid I can't reproduce your bug on my Firefox install. After I run `firefox -safe-mode` a window with an option to disable all add-ons appears and after I select this option and click 'Continue in Safe Mode' all of my extensions are disabled.

Did you also see this window?

Changed in firefox:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

Grrr. After a reboot, I cannot reproduce this either. I probably had a firefox instance running without a UI. That will cause this condition, too, but that's a firefox behavior and is not specific to Ubuntu.

Sorry for the false alarm. No issue here.
