Have you tried rm'ing ~/.mozilla/firefox? I seem to remember
running into that after an upgrade a while back, but I don't
remember what I did to solve it (I do remember deleting the
directory and letting firefox recreate it, though).
As a side note, don't forget to backup/export your bookmarks.
That's something I _didn't_ do. :)
