This message is shown when the previous upgrade is broken.

Try this to see if it stops the message:

Delete *.moz-upgrade files from Firefox folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox) to fix this.

That's why because you've removed it's registry entries, try downloading Firefox again from Mozilla and reinstall it to see if that works

So you uninstalled it, deleted it's program folders etc. & reinstalled it and it's still not starting up?

You could try a deeper uninstall of Firefox by using Revo Uninistaller Portable - http://www.revouninstaller.com/downl...ninstaller.zip (Direct Link)

Once that's completed install Firefox again to see if problems persist.
