I can't enter about or anything else into the search bar if it won't launch

I have read every article about excess RAM and using the plugins to disable Flash, changing account profiles but if I can't get to the menu because FF won't open then i'm SOL on all of those.

Those are the crash report numbers. Only the numbers with BP in front were sent to the Mozilla servers. We can then look up the reports and find out what the story is. In your case, the reports look incomplete. Some information is missing.

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.
