This has happened to me on occasion recently. Solved by rebooting the machine.

This has happened to me twice the only resolve i could come up with is to uninstall firefox delete your profile and reinstall, only thing ya really need to do before hand is backup your bookmarks (favourites) so you can reinstall them to your new profile...
