Andem, just create a fresh profile and if it works sync up your previous settings and export/import your bookmarks and other settings. Once you've got the new profile running copy the profile folder so you can paste it over a new fresh profile if you have to recreate. That's how I was able to fix Windows 98 and recover completely in less than ten minutes regardless of how bad a problem I encountered when it borked; too bad I can't do that with XP (and forget about Windows 7).
Windows shortcut, not sure about Mac/Linux...
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager -no-remote
The problem with Firefox is Mozilla, they keep doing things that annoy users. A family member of mine refuses to update from Firefox 3.6 because they messed up her toolbars when Mozilla went totally mental and decided to copy Internet Explorer 9's utter complete chaos they call a GUI with buttons randomly moved all over the place. The rapid updates are utterly worthless too, I never write about Chrome updates as Chrome does not wait long enough to gain enough to excite me and now Mozilla is doing that as well.
...if you want a seriously good browser where the developers haven't lost their mind, update frequent enough but not for the sake of simply releasing an update and you get an actual GUI I highly recommend Opera. It's not yet my main browser but I use it daily and their team has really been making huge progress. Oh, and you can usually do what you want if you take 30 seconds to go to their forums, it's very responsive over there! :)
