The four linked crash reports are very diverse, and I don't see a unifying thread. A couple of them do seem graphics related, so I'll suggest a pretty basic troubleshooting step, which is to disable Firefox from using hardware acceleration. This is a typical workaround for incompatibility with your graphics card/chipset driver software.

"3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced

On the "General" mini-tab, uncheck the box for "Use hardware acceleration when available"

This takes effect the next time you exit Firefox and start it up again. Any difference?
