But now when I either select Firefox from the menu or start it from a terminal window nothing happens.  Firefox does not start and there's no indication of any problems.

Check out the permissions on your ~/.mozilla directory. Sometimes (I 
believe if you use sudo to compile / upgrade firefox), this directory is 
created with root/wheel ownership and restrictive permissions
