User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041209 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: version 1.0 (20041224) I recently installed a bunk extension for the first time and thunderbird 1.0 refused to start. I wanted a way to start thunderbird without loading extensions, but I couldn't remember how to do it. 'thunderbird -help' displays a list of startup options, but I didn't see the option I was looking for. Searching the mozillazine forum revealed the 'thunderbird -safe-mode' trick, which worked. This is a very useful option. It would be nice to have it listed in the commandline help. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
on tbird 1.0.5 on WinXP, 'thunderbird -help' did nothing.
(In reply to comment #1) > on tbird 1.0.5 on WinXP, 'thunderbird -help' did nothing. > On Windows, use "thunderbird -help |more" to see the output (otherwise it is sent to the NUL device). There is a bug for that but the number escapes me at the moment.
