Firefox keeps crashing despite a complete reinstall.
I need help. Since several weeks, Firefox will randomly begins to crash. Black screen, white screen, everything in between... I tried updating my laptop's drivers, a complete reinstallation of Firefox, down to erasing files inside the computer... The problem disappears for maybe a few days, and then bang, here it is again.
Here are the five latest crash reports:

I'm not that tech savvy, and at my wit's end. I need help, please.

Nearly all of these are "out of memory" errors. However, it's not clear whether Windows is incapable of giving Firefox more memory, or it is simply masking some other problem. Do you notice any pattern as to when this occurs relative to restarting Windows?
Well, my Windows has been doing some crashing of its own. I used the usual repair once, it fixed some files, but even after that the crashes resumed, and when I ran it, no broken files found this time.
Before you continue fixing Firefox, you should make sure Windows is working properly.
