How to open Firefox 7 in safe mode in Windows 7 (64bit)? I have no Mozilla Firefox->Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode) in my start menu and I made a shortcut with this "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -safe-mode but it's not working.

You have two options. The easiest is to just hold down Shift when you start Firefox. The second option is to go to the Firefox menu, select Help and choose "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..."
