    You've got a LOT of Internet plugins installed. One of them is probably to blame, but you'll have to work through figuring out which it is. Compare your list with what I said is normally found in those two folders and start uninstalling plugins until the problem goes away.

    Yes, I noticed that. I'm planing on uninstalling most of them because I don't even recognize what are they for. I have one more question, in order to uninstall them. Can I just send the plug-in to the trash from the "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins" folder?.

     

    I'm not sure how to uninstall them. Thanks again!

    That's enough to get rid of the plugin, but there may be other components of the software installed elsewhere. You should try to find an uninstaller for each piece of software in question, but if you're unable to find one, removing the plugin from either of those folders would be the best bet.
