There was a recent firefox upgrade which required a restart of firefox.
It's quite common after such upgrades to be unable to open new firefox
windows - either they don't open at all, or you get mysterious error

Have you closed all open firefox windows? As a last resort you could log
out of X and log in again to make certain. Then try again.
