Firefox crashes

Firefox repeatedly crashes on startup. I get an immediate Crash Reported message. It doesn't start in Safe Mode if I hold down the SHIFT key. I've tried a new, clean download and install but it still doesn't start. I'm submitting this in IE.

ok great, looking at these reports, it looks like it may be caused by external software on the computer. please go into your system's control panel and remove any software labelled "Freecorder" or similar or by the publisher "Applian Technologies" or any other toolbars.

We're sorry to hear that your Firefox seems to be crashing when you open it. Please perform the following steps to give us a crash report ID that helps us find out more about the cause of the crash.

  1. On the keyboard, press [Windows] Windows key + [R]. This should bring up a Run window that contains a text field.
  2. In that text field, type %APPDATA% and press Enter. An explorer window should open.
  3. From that explorer window, double-click on the Mozilla folder, then double-click on Firefox and then on Crash reports. Double-click on submitted.
  4. Now, you should see a list of files that contain reports. Go to View > Arrange Icons by > Modified to get the most recent files at the top of the window.
  5. Open the most recent 5 files with a text editor and copy the IDs.
  6. Paste each ID with bp- into the reply window on the forums.

Thanks in advance!

I didn't have the View>Arrange Icons by>Modified option so I arranged them by date. The first three are from today and yesterday. The last two are several years old.
