Firefox is crashing continuously when I open it. I'm unable to open it in safe mode and reinstalling the application has not worked.

I've been running Firefox v. 18.0.2 and for a few days the application continually crashes everytime I open it. I'm currently unable to get into safe mode and this is occurring on all profiles on the machine. I've went through and updated all my Add-Ons however the issue persists. I decided to re-install the application wiping out any configurations that were previously configured. I've also tried deleting the entire %APPDATA%\Mozilla folder. Up until this point I am unable to get Firefox running.

Try to delete the profiles.ini file to force Firefox to create a new default profile.

1. Click the Windows Start button, and select Run... on Windows XP or press Windows Key + R on Windows Vista/7. Type in "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports\submitted" including the quotation marks and click OK.

2. In the resulting folder will be a text file for each crash report you have submitted. Using the View menu, arrange them by date to find out which is the newest file; and double-click on it to open it.

3. Report back to us with the latest crash ids.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Thanks for the response. I am unable to get into Firefox, nor get into Firefox in safe mode.

When I hold shift and click Firefox to run in safe mode I get the following error: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

The profile.ini was the issue. After deleting that file everything worked as intended.
