Firefox Not Working

My Firefox is not running,

I removed it and re-installed and getting same error:

Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.

How do I fix this?

Just a hunch here, did you try running Firefox as a portable app instead? See here: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

Try a system restore?
Go to start orb> all programs> accessories> system tools>system restore
look at the dates offered select one prior to problem starting.
If it was an update or some changes made ?
If this gets you back I'd recommend doing maintinence with deleting web browsing history
temp files ..
