Mozilla crashes & won't open
All of a sudden, Firefox v. 110.0.1 won't open on my MacBook Air running OS 10.15.7. When I open it, it immediately closes with the message "Firefox quit unexpectedly." In the report to Apple, I get the "problem details" info below. I would like to fix this, since all of my bookmarks and saved passwords are in that version of Firefox. Thank you.

We're sorry to hear that Firefox is crashing when you open it. Please do the following to give us crash IDs that will help us understand more about the crash.
- Click the Finder' icon in the dock. On the menu bar, click the Go menu, hold down the option or alt key and select Library. A window will open containing your Library folder.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for the help
Unfortunately, there is no "Firefox" folder in my Library / Application Support folder. There is a "Mozilla" folder but it doesn't contain a "Crash Reports" sub-folder. But I searched for "Crash Reports" and found two folders, one dated Feb. 2022 and one dated Dec. 2022. The Dec. 2022 one has a list of files starting with "InstallTime" followed by a string of numbers. None of the files start with "bp-" but I've added to those characters to the first five numbers and pasted them below.
bp-1582475522 bp-1581631494 bp-1580164578 bp-1579286459 bp-1679006286
Thank you again.
