The first two here are the most common in your list. The latter may be bug 500105.

You also have a few of these:

That may be bug 437449.

I'm suspicious of:
* APSHook.dll
* iFW_Xfilter.dll
* The Firefox extensions you have, such as Yahoo Toolbar and that eBay thing.

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode is an easy way to disable extensions, but it won't disable those third-party modules that hook into Firefox using Windows mechanisms.

If Firefox safe mode doesn't help, you'll need to build Firefox debug (this will take a few hours) and look for thread-safety assertions, since the crash location isn't enough information to fix these crashes.  To build debug, follow instructions on https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Simple_Firefox_build, but:
* Use the "For a debug build..." part as your mozconfig (don't use the line that ends with the ">> mozconfig".
* Clone from http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-1.9.1/ instead of central.
