UPDATE: Saturday 16 May 2015
Same problems as below now exist on THREE machines -- one Windows 7 64bit desktop, and two laptops Windows 7 64bit, all Win 7 SP1, updated with latest MS Updates.
Updated to Firefox 38.0.1 Windows 7 64bit...previous version of FF was working fine and was meticulously crafted by experienced tech user.
Now, we have two major troubles immediately happened with update to 38.0.1:
1. Will NOT close Firefox (have to use Task manager). Nothing we do within FF closes it
2. Firefox will NOT open New Private Window, only after we located a New Private Window toolbar icon will item #2 work.
Again, this is the fifth straight time after Updating FF that it suddenly creates new and not-seen-before problems.
This is NOT due to Add-Ons, it's not due to Plug-In's... it's due to a sudden new problem(s) introduced by the Updated FF 38.0.1, now on three different machines.
Starting FF in Safe Mode is tacitly useless and time-consuming, and proves nothing, allows nothing to be checked or changed, the problems remain.
When having to use Task Manager to close FF 38.0.1, restarting FF again calls in the Crashed Session Manager and we have to recover from what FF insists is a crashed session.
Why oh why are these new problems suddenly introduced each time we users update ?
Now what's been changed or altered, all without our knowledge, and not mention in ANY of the new FF notes, etc.
EVERY time we update, it's essentially introducing inferior performance and problems in an otherwise finely tuned previously working FF.
Saturday 16 May 2015: Have received no replies, no assistance or ideas from Mozilla troubleshooting or programming staff. There must be many Windows 7 64bit users seeing the same problem(s) ??
I can't update outdated Adobe Flash Player and Reader plug-ins for Firefox because Adobe Download Manager window is empty and can't do anything within it.

I've downloaded the Flash Player plug-in for Firefox .exe installer file with no problem, but when I click Run to open it and complete the installation, a blank Adobe Download Manager window opens and I can't continue or do anything with it. Same problem with the Reader plug-in installer file.
I have Windows XP Professional SP3.
