Why, all of a sudden, is Firefox crashing on me. I am receiving the 'Firefox has stopped working' and 'Plugin Container for 'Firefox has stopped working.'

I receive 'Firefox has stopped working' when first opening it up sometimes, but I receive both messages when trying to go into Farmville on Facebook. I have tried as many fixes as possible that are listed....going so far as to uninstall Flash and Mozilla and then reinstalling. Nothing is working.

Here are my image copies. It wouldn't let me attach them when I posted the question.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?

I tried it in safe mode and am still receiving the errors. Attached new screen images. My CPU usage was also showing as 100%.
