Firefox Crashes on Launch

more options

I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. I wasn't having any issues with Firefox until it crashed unexpectedly and showed the Mozilla Crash Reporter. Now I can't launch Firefox and only receive the Crash Reporter. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox from the command line. If I attempt to uninstall Firefox from the Ubuntu Software GUI, I get an error that it can not be uninstalled because of unmet dependencies (although it doesn't list any missing dependencies). I have submitted a crash report with Crash ID: bp-fe22d740-064d-4990-a5ee-13c080210227.

Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

That is a problem with the color profile of your display monitor that is either too large or incompatible with Firefox.
