Firefox on Raspian crashes at startup. Removal and reinstall does not resolve the issue. Safe mode crashes the same way.

Since these crashes happen with a special third-party build for your Linux OS version, best would be to contact the maintainer of your operating system for support. We normally only deal with Firefox versions from the official Mozilla server.
