Public bug reported:

A freshly updated firefox (to 46) does not work anymore if there is
already a firefox profile. Basically everything is broken: sessions,
menus even browsing by typing in a web address.

As a work around (sort of), one can delete the profile (~/.mozilla) and start fresh ... and lose all settings, extensions etc.
Or downgrade until this is fixed.

I get this issue on two machines running a fully updated xubuntu trusty.
