I tried uninstalling firefox then reinstalling. It didn't help. The only thing I can think of that I might have done is... I use a program to find and remove junk files and possibly I junked a necessary file? But I've used this in the past several times and firefox was not affected. I'm on Windows XP.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
