Apple Mac Pro (early 2009). Firmware 4.1 -> 5.1 macOS 10.13.5 Firefox 60.0.1

Hello, I have been using Firefox Quantum 60 and it has been working fine. I've just rebooted my machine and started Firefox. It gave me a message about how some process was acting strangely and might possibly be trying to start a ransomware attack. It listed 7 suspicious cache filenames and gave me the choice of blocking or trusting. I panicked slightly and clicked Trust. didn't think to grab a screenshot of this activity. Now when I try to launch Firefox, nothing happens whatsoever. I still have other copies of Firefox, namely the old Firefox, the Developer Edition, and the FirefoxNightly build, but I wanted to check with you before doing anything else and possibly making matters worse.

I hope you can help! I don't like being without Firefox for too long!

Thanks in advance, Carl
