    Backup your bookmarks
    Download the latest version of Firefox
    Uninstall Firewfox
    Re-install it

    Or
    You could rebuild your profile (which seems to have been corrupted)
    To do this right click on your desktop icon for Firefox, then click on properties

    change this:
    Target: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"


    to this:
    Target: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p
    apply and okay

    Now double click on the Mozilla Firefox icon the profile manager will appear Just create one using your name that that will rebuild firefox you'll need to re-install all add-on and that google tool bar.

    Remember you need to remove the -P before you use Firefox.
