Firefox is stuck in a crash loop, the crash reporter appears on firefox start and just keeps appearing when I click 'restart firefox'. It will not start in safe mode either.
Crash ID: bp-815ec280-aca3-4252-ba4c-b38472161215
Additional System Details

I do not understand the Crash Report but no one else has answered yet. I do see flashplayer is involved so you could consider uninstalling flashplayer to see if that helps.
Because it is a startup crash you may well need to do a clean reinstall of Firefox to get it working. That involves deleting the Firefox Program files before reinstalling Firefox

Make sure it is the Linux version of the article you read direct link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-crashing-startup#firefox:linux:fx50
On Linux I often have both the Distro version of Firefox (Canonical on Ubuntu & IceWeasel on Debian) Installed. as well as the Mozilla Build of Firefox. If installing the Distro version does not work maybe consider installing the Mozilla build of Firefox
