If you uninstall firefox and reinstall it, it will be just as you left it. That means you have to do some serious uninstalling. Firefox is pretty hard to uninstall. I had to uninstall firefox before. You have to do a search on your hard drive for "moz" and delete everything that has anything to do with mozilla. Then go to start-run- and type regedit.
Then delete hkey_current user-software-mozilla

delete hkey_local machine-software mozilla
delete hkey_local machine-software MozillaPlugins
delete hkey_local machine-software mozilla.org

Then restart and then install firefox

You might want to also uninstall all of the plugins then reinstall them once firefox is working again.
