Firefox crashed, now won't start, crash reporter message every time

Greetings,
I was using firefox as usual and all of the sudden it crashes and it's now gone and everytime I try to start up a new browser the same crash reporter message comes on:
"Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts."
I've restarted, created a new profile..nothing works. Cannot access safe mode. Cannot access anything. In fact, when I try to access older bookmarks which I backed up and saved on a flashdrive and want to view them, the same error pops up with the crash report. I'd like to know if my bookmarks (old and recent) can still be accessed and backed up and that I can solve this problem and use firefox again soon.
Below is the report contents I just copied and pasted

More details:
The regular/non-extended Hardware Test returned no problems, despite taking hours for what was supposed to be a 3-5 minute test. I haven't dared run the extended.
I also tried removing third-party RAM and using the original configuration, then just the third-party and no Apple, etc.. It's not the RAM, as the problem is exactly the same.
I'm going to call up Apple support when I can, but just looking for other things I can check or possibly do until then, or just insight on what the problem could be.
Is it most likely the graphics card? Could it be an issue with the core hardware?
