A simple solution:

Open a Terminal-Window, enter the following:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

Now you can create a new Profile to use with Firefox in the future.

History, bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc. would be gone, if you still need them, you can migrate at least the history and the bookmarks from the old profile.

What password is this since Firefox doesn't require a password to open or run ?

Can you attach a screenshot?
