Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for your question. I will do my best to assist you.
Are you able to play the video and what is your OS X Version?
Optional Remote Connect Service - Quick Resolution
Would you like me to remotely connect to your computer and fix the issue - The remote service will be an additional service for $34 but will allow me direct access to work on your issue and fix it (while you watch on your screen). If you need remote service, reply with the words "i want remote"
If you do not need the remote service, then simply provide me the requested information above. If you need remote service reply me with the words "i want remote".
Thanks

Did you hold the shift key and then clicked the firefox icon?
The icon needs to be clicked from the desktop.
you should get a refresh option if not reset?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
when i hold the shift key and left click i get nothing. when i hold the shift key and right click i get the same menu as when i just right click. is it the restore previous version option you are referring to?
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 2 years ago.
No, not that option.
Open Firefox, and while in Firefox, press the Alt key.
You will get a menu on top, choose Help -> Troubleshooting Information
Select Refresh Firefox -> Refresh Firefox
Let me know.
