Firefox hangs when scripts run, works fine with Javascript off

Turning Javascript off makes firefox work like normal. Other browsers have no issue. This started acting up on me about 4-5 days ago. Quite annoying to not be able to run firefox with javascript on. Is there a way to reinstall javascript?

I have tried safe mode, resetting firefox, reinstalling firefox, disabling addons, changing profiles, it really comes down to javascript being turned off fixes it for me. So despite being fairly computer savvy, I have no idea what is causing this. I ran Microsoft security essentials, a few malware/spyware utilities, checked hijackthis. I cannot find the issue. Firefox likely submitted 50+ crash reports.

is one crash report, I tried to get one of the earlier ones to see if that would help, not sure if this one will, I have plenty of them. But I'll load a page or a couple of pages and firefox will hang, it won't crash outright, but I end up using Task manager to close it.
