Firefox keeps crashing when launched (error message included)

more options

I am trying to fix my friend's computer and both IE8 and Firefox get errors when they are launched. I managed to get IE8 to work once in xp's safemode by allowing it to disable a certain plugin but Firefox still won't work properly. I've gotten it to start in firefox's safemode but it is extremely slow loading webpages and sometimes doesn't load all the information (links, etc.) I also tried reinstalling Firefox and still had issues. I'm hoping one of you can help me glean some useful information from message I grabbed from the crash reporter's details.
