Firefox keeps asking to restart

I'm running into a bizarre FireFox issue that I can't even find on their help pages. I updated to Firefox 53. Everything was fine and it asked me to reboot FF so I did. It launched again but now it keeps asking me to install it again. I tried to install / reinstall FF all over again but that didn't help. Anyone seen this before?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds like something may have been corrupted during the update. Maybe a conflict with other software you had running. I would try uninstalling Firefox and then do a clean Install and see if that solves the issue. I’m running Firefox 53.0.2 and have not had any issues.

    As you tried uninstalling/reinstalling, first of all check are there add-on/ plug-ins included with FF. If yes, uninstall them Or disable from FF settings. Now restart FF again and see if that happens again. If FF works file, install only necessary plug-ins/add-ons one by one and every time start FF and see if the same happens again. This is nothing but a troubleshoot procedure. You can start FF in safe mode and try the same.

    I've never seen this but it definitely sounds like corruption or potentially malware. You might consider uninstalling it completely and reinstalling as well as running a full system scan using multiple malware scanners.
