 The uninstall/reinstall should fix your problem unless you've picked up some malware somehow.  I would've thought you'd have reinstalled before posting here.   Let us know how it goes.

 

 Good luck.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Any other error messages, redirects, or popups when Firefox crashes?  If uninstall doesn't work, or even if it does, I would do a Malwarebytes scan just in case. The two most common things to crash a browser is a bad plugin, or malware of some type. If Malwarebytes finds anything, I suggest this thread to be moved to "Am I infected"

I keep firefox working 'cause GChrome won't download 1/2 of the stuff I want to download, where FF has no problem.  "File Security Check Fail" something like that within GChrome.

I  experienced the same issue as well. What I did first is shut down the laptop and close all the programs. When I re-opened it, Firefox normally launch and when it goes back to the same issue I will just close and re-open my laptop. Good thing is that Firefox still remembers my browsing history every time it encounters 'not responding' problem.
