This sort of thing can happen occasionally between Mozilla updates.
One thing to try is moving aside your ~/.mozilla directory and
starting again with a new one.  Of course, this means that you'll have
to recreate all of your customised settings and bookmarks and so forth.

Yes -- all of your mozilla processes are stuck trying to startup and
running into some sort of problem reading the defaults.  You should
kill off all of these processes before doing anything with your
~/.mozilla as above:

    % ps -ax | grep moz | awk '{print $1}' | xargs kill
