How do I get rid of it? I got it to go away once when "Firefox is already running, but is not responding" popped up and I unchecked the box in the message as to which files to save

Welcome to LQ.

close firefox and open a terminal.
mv ~/.mozilla/firefox ~/.mozilla/firefox.back
open firefox and report back here what happens after that.
