Truly odd.

As to the firefox..

Have you tried to execute it from the command line ?

Quoting PeteVG
2)  Try running Firefox from the command line by opening a terminal,
typing "firefox", and hitting Enter.  Watch the terminal output, as it
may give you hints as to why Firefox is crashing. 

Do that and post any output...
