You can use the profile manager to do this, without having to deal
with configuration directories manually:

	% firefox -P
	% firefox -p
	% firefox -ProfileManager

However, configuration "bugs" should not cause Firefox to crash.

It should be ~/.mozilla/firefox, with subdirectories for each
profile that has been instantiated.

Check if a newer version of Firefox is available. In many cases,
performing an update will help.

Oh, and always check for filesystem inconsistencies... ;-)
