   Exit Firefox (if open): Click the Firefox menu Fx57Menu and select Exit.
   Uninstall Firefox from your computer.

       C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
       C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox 
   Reinstall Firefox using the installer you downloaded earlier - see How to download and install Firefox on Windows for instructions. 

Now start Firefox and check to see if your problem has been fixed. If it hasn't, continue with the next troubleshooting method.


And for refreshing Firefox follow these steps


   Click this Refresh Firefox button directly, if you are viewing this page in Firefox. This won't work if you are using a different browser or a mobile device.
       You can also find a Refresh Firefox button at the top of the Firefox about:support Troubleshooting Information page. 
   To continue, click Refresh Firefox in the confirmation window that opens.
   Firefox will close to refresh itself. When finished, a window will list your imported information. Click Finish and Firefox will open.
