Does the law of conservation of mass fail to meet the first postulate of the special theory of relativity(the laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames of reference)?

Conservation means does not change over time. What the first postulate would say is:

If mass is conserved in one inertial reference frame, then it is conserved in them all.

No. Why do you think it might conflict?
