System: MacBook Pro (Retina early 2015) @2,7GHz i5 OS: macOS High Sierra 10.13.6

Today after trying to open a random website out of my Mail-App, Firefox did't open. Now, when launching the Firefox-icon in the dock, it does the little jumping-animation, but after that nothing happens. No error-message either.

Before that, Firefox functioned perfectly. I can't remember installing any updates or changing any preferences today.

I tried reinstalling Firefox (clean reinstall) as described in several other posts. Also tried the suggestions on the Mozilla Support-Page ("Firefox won't start - find solutions"). Opening Firefox in Safe Mode or by holding the option-key also didn't work.

Would really appreciate your help, thanks.

Edit: When moving and launching Firefox from another drive (SD-Card or initial "virtual" Firefox-drive) it somehow workes!

FF 69.0.1, OSX 10.12.6, everything browser is updated. Frequent crashes in normal mode, even with all addons disabled. Stable in Safe Mode. I've been through the entire troubleshooting article and handled everything except the OS, which I can't do because of other software requirements. Crashes are hard OS crashes & reboots, not FF Crash Reporter. Most often is 'plugin_container' and less often 'kernel_task'. System is completely stable without FF running and with FF in Safe Mode. Is there anything else I can do? I deeply depend on my browser, have used FF since inception and would like to not switch to "that which is not evil" (which I'm having to use here because moz.org wouldn't let me log in in Safe Mode in FF).
