Thunderbird ported this in bug 641784...
I'm not sure if we want to do this but I'll defer to the rest of you.
I think this is a terrible idea. While users are often advised to see if a problem occurs in Safe Mode, they are rarely told how to launch SeaMonkey in Safe Mode. Clicking an icon in a Start menu is user-oriented. Getting a command line and entering the correct path to SeaMonkey with the correct parameters -- not "safemode", not "safe-mode", but "-safe-mode" -- is definitely NOT user-oriented.
Yeah. Makes sense. Adding [WONTFIX?] to the whiteboard.

In recent times I've seen quite often comments such as the following: Does this happen in Safe Mode? Help → Restart with Add-Ons Disabled which I'll venture is user-oriented, as far as it works (i.e., e.g. not if the app crashes at every startup). This said, I am *not* in favour of removing the safe-mode desktop icon (on platforms where it exists) because we need a user-oriented way to start SeaMonkey in Safe Mode when it is not already running (and in particular, against a startup crash).
Not often, but I see - browser not start at all, or start and crash, but start in safe-mode. Usage of help menu not a solution for that case.
