That would mean a bad firefox install or update.

1. backup bookmarks 2. download latest firefox 3. uninstall all firefox install 4. delete mozilla folder 5. reinstall firefox 6. run firefox and see if the problem remains.

Please do the following:

Click on the Windows icon 'Start' (bottom-left) and in the right column, bottom, click on Run. Enter in:

DxDiag /64bit

(Skip the /64bit part if it's Windows 32-Bit.)

...Wait until the green bar loads and disappears, then click "Save All Information".
