It crashes instantly when you try to open it. It doesn't even open Firefox, it just opens the Crash Reporter.

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling several times, I've restarted my computer several times, I wiped it from my registry editor, and nothing has changed.

The crash ID is: bp-89dc985d-1ccc-46c8-bcd0-139832150121

The crash report shows unknown error.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift (Mac Options) > key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

You can try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

I can't open it in Safe Mode, it still opens the crash reporter. I also can't use about:config because Firefox won't open - at all. It immediately opens the crash reporter.

If you can't get Firefox to open, you will have to do this the hard way. Open the file browser / explorer on your computer. Note: You may have to enable Show Hidden Folders / Files. Enter this in the address bar;
