You should be able to Install Firefox without loosing anything, but I'd first get Applejack...
After installing, reboot holding down CMD+s, (+s), then when the DOS like prompt shows, type in...
Then let it do all 5 of it's things.
At least it'll eliminate some questions if it doesn't fix it.
The 5 things it does are...
Correct any Disk problems.
Clear out Cache Files.
Repair/check several plist files.
Dump the VM files for a fresh start.
Then... Try putting these numbers in Network>TCP/IP>DNS Servers, for the Airport Interface...
DNS Servers are a bit like Phone books where you look up a name and it gives you the phone number, in our case, you put in apple.com and it comes back with 18.104.22.168 behind the scenes.
These Servers have been patched to guard against DNS poisoning, and are faster/more reliable than most ISP's DNS Servers.
First try deleting this file. org.mozilla.firefox.plist
/Users/YourName/Library/Preferences. Drag that file from the Preferences folder to the Trash, empty the Trash and restart your Mac.
