I think this is a unique issue..... I use Win XP Pro with sp2.... Like most people, I use Firefox. The issue is, when I use Firefox, after a few days, I get the Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode) being displayed in the Start Menu Recent programs list. Please check the screen shot. This happens when Firefox runs normally and I use the shortcut in Quicklaunch to open Firefox. But, when I open it from the Start menu recent progs, It opens in Safe mode. I would like to know why this happens. When I use the normal firefox, why is it that it shows as Safe Mode??? Could somebody please explain.. I have also reformatted my computer many times and each time, the Firefox shows as Safemode after a few days.
