Now I get it!

I did look at the "extensions" window while in "safe mode", but didn't
realize each entry was, in fact, usable since everything was grayed out.

So, I'll now remove "likely candidates", and restart 'firefox'.

The best way to do that, actually, is to right-cllck on suspect extensions, and select 'Disable'.  That way, if it's not the offender, it's easy to re-enable it.  Disable all the suspect ones, and then re-enable one by one, going from safemode to regular mode each time.  A bit of a pain, but effective!

Well, I thought you could do that, but apparently 'Disable' is not an option in safemode because they're disabled already; so uninstall is the only option.

Sorry to mislead.
