ctrl alt delete and find in the processes tab the one named firefox.exe and end it. Then try restarting FF

It could be a corrupt profile click here

It could be an extension corrupting your profile folder, the easiest thing to do is to delete the profile folder, this tells you the location of it click here before you delete it you may want to open the folder and save some items like your Bookmarks.html file so you can import it into the new profile, this site give a list of other things you may want to save if you use them click here
