[Bug-gnuzilla] IceCat hangs in 'safe mode'

User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:10.0.11) Gecko/20121123 Icedove/10.0.11

I have been using icecat since its inception, and recently set up icecat-17.0.1.
I was pleasantly surprised that, after downloading and unpacking it, it would
start as simply as  './icecat' .. with the usual './configure', 'make', and 'make install'.

I proceeded to selectively install a few extensions and themes, but then found
that it crashed, and now './icecat' either does not start, or gives me the msg

"GNU IceCat closed unexpectedly while starting. This might be caused
by add-ons or other problems. You can try to resolve the problem
by resetting GNU IceCat to its default state or troubleshooting in
Safe Mode."

When I hit the button "Start in Safe Mode" it comes up with a
'Restore Session' screen with the msg that
"You can try * Starting an entirely new browsing session".

Pressing "Start Session" gives me 'Add-ons Manager' with the msg
"All add-ons have been disabled by safe mode'.

I have managed to get past that.

Can anyone advise how I could start an entirely new browsing session,
or exit 'safe mode' ?
