Could try renaming the folder:

$HOME/.mozilla

I assume you don't use Thunderbird as your email client.

what i did was to reset the Firefox browser to its initial settings. This only partially remedied the issue, and uncovered some others: The first is that both Facebook.com Google.com and YouTube.com (now run by google) occasionally pop-up a message that they had failed at attempting to install Unautorized Additional Flash Player packages. And they appear to be continuing to attempt to do so. This is playing havoc with the Video Cards Cooling Fan operation (loud audible click) every time they do this.. It also causes a complete OS User interface freeze up when they do. ..The second is that Facebook.com in continually attempting to Force 'Profile Picture Automatic log in' (Which I repeatedly shut off and reject their doing) also causes a recurrent ./Tmp directory mismatch issue. The third is now when attempting to use the Right Click menu to 'save image as' in Firefox. also frequently causes a complete OS freeze up, forcing a necessary reboot in (hold down shift key at start up) recovery mode and then running FSCK to correct.

Sunday May 21, 2017. I had further compounding Firefox Browser issues. So I did a complete reinstall of Ubuntu using the 'Something Else' option and reformatting the ext4 partition.
