When I start Firefox I get a 'Bus Error'.

After that I'm not able to launch firefox. In the console I get 'Bus Error', even when I try to run in safe mode.

1.a Open Firefox (from the Applications folder)
OR
1.b /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -safe-mode

Actual Results:  
Firefox doesn't start

poisonbook:/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS poison$ /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -safe-mode
Bus error

Start Firefox

poisonbook:/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS poison$ gdb ./firefox-bin
