I want a superclean new version of Firefox. How can I do it?

My son installed Firefox in my computer and he input his Google account as default. He is living in another country and I have to constantly change Google to my account. I've thought that, if I reinstall it the problem is going to be solved, but unfortunately absolutely all the old setting remain, even if I let the "Restore... " box checked. Firefox knows it's been reinstalled. I cannot login on my son's account for privacy reasons, so I cannot delete it. Is there a way to reinstall Firefox from scratch?

Firefox comes in two or more folders on all computers. They are;

Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And two folders in the profile of each user on the computer for each Firefox profile for that user.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.

Use these links to create a new profile. Use this new profile as is.
