This can occur if Firefox can not find the profile folder or the profile folder is locked. Try the options on this page - http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_in_use

Start with the sections on "Remove the profile lock file" and "Check the profile folder name and location"

If you are trying for a completely clean installation with no bookmarks or passwords, you can completely remove the profile folder as shown in the "Removing user profile data" section of this page - http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_Firefox
