My Fireglow Japanese maple had red leaves last year (i bought it last year). This year it has all green leaves. Why does it have all green leaves when it is suppose to have all red?

Fireglow should start the season with red leaves, not green ones so I'm not sure what's going on with your maple. Are you sure the branches remained alive over the winter months and the new growth is coming from the branches and are not new shoots from the roots? I'm confused!
