Safe Mode also disables Firefox Tracking Protection. This can fix some problems having nothing to do with addons, such as with ShareThis.com buttons not appearing on a website.

Note: currently, this feature of Safe Mode seems not to be documented for Firefox users. It deserves to be, so certain website problems can be fixed more easily.

Safe Mode also disables Firefox Tracking Protection.

Thank you for that.

Yes as Brummelchen stated, Safe Mode is only to be used for troubleshooting problems, also many articles here and other Mozilla support site, on how to use Safe mode.
