    Run a permissions repair in disk utility and then consider deleting iTunes and Firefox preferences, see if that works first

    Archive & Install OS X. It looks as though there's something wrong with your system.

    Try to reset everything before archive and install
    1.-Try first to reset the apps that don't open (safari, firefox, etc) and the ones you can't reset, try to delete the .plist file /yourusername/library/preferences.
    2.-After that fix permissions with disk utility Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
    3.-If still in trouble re-boot from you install disc that came with the computer (mac OS X 10.4) or you Mac OS X 10.5 (in case you've leopard) and repair your hd (on the menu bar chose utilities and you'll find disk utility again).
    4.-If non of that worked try to start up on single user mode ( + S) and then type: /sbin/fsck -f after the computer is finished of fixing things type: exit
    5.-Still stucked re-intall the faulty apps (for system apps like safari use your original disc 1 that came with your computer).
    6.-Archive and install or erase and install.
    7.-If still you are in trouble contact a apple store near you.

    I hope that will help.
