    Per Mozilla support, the user data isn't deleted when Firefox is uninstalled using Add/Remove Programs. So, when the program is reinstalled, perhaps it loads the previous profiles instead of creating a new one? And perhaps the problem lies within the profile rather than the program?

    You can try starting Firefox in safe mode or w/ a new profile.

    To start Firefox in safe mode, click Help, then select Restart w/ Add-ons Disabled. More details here: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe Mode

    Try uninstalling FF using Revo Uninstaller and re-install it thru www.ninite.com. How about trying Redirect Remover add-on of FF. HTH

    Save your FF bookmarks to a flashdrive then use http://www.revouninstaller.com/
    to remove FF & then go to Start>search >All files & Folders & search for FF there. Delete what is found & then hopefully you can reinstall FF & start fresh.
    I have found out from experience revo doesn't uninstall everything all the time:)
