It's hard to say.  Have you tried to start it from terminal and see what 
error messages pop up, if any?  have you tried the safe-mode option?  It 
is described in man firefox-esr on my system.  Have you installed or 
upgraded any extensions or plugins, what are they, and did you do that 
through the debian repo, or did you install/upgrade something through the 
browser?
