Firefox crashes - Even after un-install - re-install

I cannot get Firefox to open at all. This has been an issue on this laptop for a while now. I un-installed it including removing the Program Files sub-folder for Firefox. After the installer completed, it tried to open it and it crashed. I have the latest Windows 10 updates installed and have run security scans on this laptop from various vendors. There is no spyware, viruses or other malware.

Crash report copied from the System Details list by moderator.

This could be a compatibility problem between Webroot SecureAnywhere and Malwarebytes software installed on your computer.

Update the above. If there is still a problem, disable it.

This is what I get when I try to install....... C:\users\Gil\App\Data\temp\7zSFDDE\setup-stub.exe

The extended attributes are inconsistent.

 What this means I have no idea,perhaps because I am 90 yrs old!!!!!

Some protection programs don't like the update/install stubs. Go here for the full installer.

The first report talks about you having an outdated flash player. Process Type plugin (web) Filename: NPSWF32_18_0_0_232.dll

Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.
