Wouldn't start - got message xpcom error

I'm running this in a VM but it appears to be a firefox problem on Windows. It works fine on the Host. Restarting gives same error.
I'll restore previous version of firefox.

Complete uninstall (and the mozilla maintenance app), re-downloaded again, re-install and its working again - Not sure what the original problem was though -- so marking as solved.

Cheers

The Cannot load XPCOM appears because this component is missing. This usually happens because of a failed Firefox update.
