Have you tried Firefox's safe-mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode_(Firefox)
I raised the severity of this to critical. I'm unable to use my financial sites because they open up secondary windows for many functions. These windows won't open up, even if popup blocking is turned off. The same behavior happens in safe-mode.
Severity: normal → critical
Then probably a new profile or a reinstallation in a new clean directory will solve this. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Folder
The problem was that I untarred the new release on top of the old directory. I blew away the old directory, untarred, and now it works. (I hope there was nothing that I needed to keep around!)

I have the same problem. It started as soon as I downloaded the latest version of Firefox, 220.127.116.11. If I either type Command N or go through the File menu with New Window, the spinning timewheel appears and then eventually goes away. I did not have this problem with any previous version of Firefox. Just to check I redownloaded 18.104.22.168 three times. Each time the fault remains. I can have a dozen tabs open in the single window but that's it. No error message, no crash, nothing. I didn't realise how much I use multiple windows with multiple tabs.
