Firefox will not open

I received an error message warning of suspected malware when attempting to update a Firefox password using Dashlane and chose the block option. Now whenever I try to open Firefox I get this message:

The application “Firefox” can’t be opened.

I have tried reinstalling Firefox but it doesn't work. I do not know which app sent the original message, since I did not have Norton app blocking activated.

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article;

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently.
If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Hi becket.mcgrath, I think it might be a system-level block. Could you check whether the "Security & Privacy" settings panel mentions anything about this:

Neither of these worked. For Arman: Are those menu commands for Firefox? If so, that won't work, as I can't open Firefox...

Thanks. Nothing came up on malware scans but deleting and creating a new profile fixed it.
