When you say Safe Mode, are you referring to starting the program in 
Safe Mode (CLI), where it comes up w/o extensions or Safe Mode while 
      I'm not sure I understand your question.  But here is what I have done:  normally
      I click on the icon for firefox-esr that appears under Activities in the upper LH
      corner.  But I have looked at the man page for firefox-esr, and there are options,
      including one for safe-mode.  In other words one can call, from the command-line
          firefox-esr --safe-mode.  So I have tried both
          firefox-esr --no-safe-mode   and   firefox-esr --safe-mode-off    
      Alas, neither worked!
