Firefox Add-ons Disabled Upon Start

So I have this extremely annoying issue. Almost every time I open Firefox on my system, all of my add-ons get disabled. There is no pattern to when it will happen either. Sometimes I can open it 2 or three time without a problem, other times its every single time, and to top it off all of my saved logins randomly disappear too, as well as some of the settings (namely search bar settings). A simple closing and reopening of Firefox restores the login info, but not the settings. I’ve tried making a new profile, didn’t work. Tired uninstalling Firefox and starting clean, still didn’t work. I’ve checked all my settings, and tried deleting the extensions data in the Mozilla folder. Nothing seams to work, and I don’t have a clue why this keeps happening. I’ve been using Firefox since it was still in beta, and have never had this kind of problem before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. You may need to sync the browser to get the same add-ons installed or just install them one by one. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

This seams to have solved the problem, what ever it was/is.
