You might have a corrupt profile click here

As VOG has suggested, most Firefox problems are connected with faulty profiles. Apart from following the advice in his link, you could also disable all of your "Add Ons" to see if they one of them is causing the problem. If all OK then, enable them one at a time to find the culprit.

"can i just ask how do profiles get corrupt in the first place?"

Sorry, no idea. It happened to me once and Firefox wouldn't open at all.
