FireFox: Moderate SafeSearch is on

I'm going out of my mind here ....

I use Google as my home page. If I had a dollar for every time I've ticked "Do not filter my search results" and clicked "Save Preferences" I'd be RICH!

OK maybe not rich, but sheeesh its shitting me.

For a while (after installing a new fresh copy of XP) the "Moderate SafeSearch is off" was the norm.

Then for some strange reason I get "Moderate SafeSearch is on" and it fucking STAYS on. No matter what I do?

Anyone know a perm fox for this annoyance?

I used to have that problem, but it went away about a year ago.

No idea why.

Used to drive me mad.

I came. I saw. I did not concur.

What is this SafeSearch thing you speak of?

Where exactly are you seeing that it is on/off?

I don't see it anywhere when I go to www.google.com or do a search.

Better that above than what I'd REALLY like to say ....

OK after a few hours stuffing about I thought stuff it. The web has no answers (whats new) so I went and deleted firefox entirely from my system to start over. Now before the ultimate delete - I saved my bookmarks.html file, which is 700+ kb in size.

I took screenshots of my extensions and themes used - even took a screenshot of my damn username and password list in firefox just to be on the safe side.

So all is looking good - new firefox, loaded themes, loaded extensions, loaded stylish and set up my funky google dark skin - pretty much eveything to how it was before.

Now to load up my bookmarks.html file into C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\blah blah blah and that should be it - finished ....

WRONG!

Now firefox wont load my fucking saved bookmarks.html file :(

I'm an inch away from doin me nut on this fucking system.

This might have been a better idea. Keep in mind for future reference. :)
