Whenever I try to open a new window, nothing happens. This includes clicking ctrl+N and through the drop down menu.

Also, whenever I start firefox to browse the internet, it always open with a Session Restore with the previous session listed, even though I closed all the tabs and shut it down normally without any prompts telling me about saving multiple tabs.

Finally, when I tried to troubleshoot this problem, the tab never appeared. The only options that work on the Help Menu are: - Firefox Help (after a few clicks) - Report Broken Web Site - Check for Updates - About Firefox

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
