You need to make sure you are starting in safe-mode correctly:

yeah im running it correctly and it still just hangs. Cant do anything with it.
Have you tried putting the application on another location? Some firewalls get
in their minds that an application has changed, that you disagreed with that and
is refusing now to let it make connections to other ports and addresses. 
You could also open your firewall, delete any rule for Firefox but also delete
all its fingerprinting identification marks for Firefox. I personally have such
a firewall (old Tiny Personal Firewall) that gets corrupted once in a half year
and this treatment always helps.

Nope No go either. Did it and still not working. It just ...hangs...stops 
working so to say. Using opera is gettin really annoying lol
