Just open your applications folder and drag Firefox to the Trash
Download a new copy of Firefox from here http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
10.5 to 10.8 is always sketchy. Could bring up lots of issues, so this should get you all fixed up

Right the version might not be different, BUT the applications files, when moved from a much older OS, could have been corrupted or incompatible.
Just because its the same version, doesnt mean its coded the same way either. Different OS's speak differently and there is CERTAINLY a difference in 10.5 and 10.8

When trying to launch it, where are you launching it from?
Could be a dead shortcut. Try launching it from the applications folder.
If you launch it from the applications folder and it doesnt come up, check next to the Apple logo in the top left corner, and see what the word is next to the icon. Should be whatever application is active. Let me know if its Firefox or something else.

Fully quit Firefox by holding option and clicking on it, then clicking Quit
Click Go at the top of your screen
Hold Option and click on Library when it appears
Navigate to the Preferences folder
Look for "org.mozilla.firefox.plist" and delete it
Try relaunching Firefox and see if it works then

Nothing to be sorry about!
Try this, will help us narrow it down.
Open System Preferences
Go to Users & Groups
Unlock the lock in the bottom left
Create a new user account, but make sure you switch it from a standard to administrator
Once thats created try logging out of your account, signing in to that new user and try opening Firefox there
Let me know how it works or if it works in the new user account, then we will better know where to look

Nope.... But I actually solved... Chocolame suggested a new account, but I actually went to my "alternative" account I already have, and it was working fine there... SO I did some finxing in my regular account (my Little Snitch was a bit too highper....), and it's now working...
Sorry for not responding earlier....
