This may not be the answer most people would give you...but...I find that 'sometimes' it's easier just to re-install than to waste your time trying to solve a problem.
Firefox is an easy re-install...and it's usually quick and painless.

Added to what Eg recommends, if you do the uninstall/re-install route, remember to manually delete the Mozilla/Firefox folders, the uninstall will leave these behind and if your profile is corrupted will be there again on an install.....

Yeah, sounds like your userid doesn't have permission to save or modify files as needed.
From there, it's simply a matter of determining what folders/files have the incorrect permissions, and granting them as needed.
Since you haven't provided much info on what platform you are running, which version of firefox, or your user/environment settings, we can only presume to help.
