When I download a fresh copy of firefox and attempt to install it, the install seems to go ok. But when I activate firefox, it just comes up with a blank page,

I've tried uninstalling it and re-installing it 3 times now.. Same result.

It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or restricts Firefox without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox application. Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
