Try removing your auto-activation plugins for font management, Extensis Suitcase Fusion seems to be generating a lot of this stuff.
If that's not it, well, instead of force quit, run Activity Monitor and garner:
1: Sample Process. Save to file
2. View > Send Signal: Abort (SIGABRT). This will force a crash and crash report.
Upload both files to http://pastebin.com/ and post a link here. Don't paste them in here, it makes the forum unnavigable.
I'll look at them and tell you the cause of the crash (probably).
What I actually did by with a help of a friend, they removed the SING.Indesign Plugin, and told me I should do the same - I did so, and everything works completely fine again! But thank you so much for the help, anyways :]
Oh, SING. Yes, that can cause this too. Usually less drastic solutions than removing the plugin are workable, such as
outlined in http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/408/kb408816.html. But glad you got it working!!
I suspect John is correct about a plugin malfunction, but it may also be a font issue, or even corrupt preferences. Unless you actively tell the uninstaller to remove your preferences, they get left in place and are used after reinstalling, so they don't necessarily get fixed by doing a reinstall. The good news is trashing your prefs is fast, easy, and reversible if you do it by renaming or moving files, so it's a reasonable thing to try in a situation like this. See Replace Your Preferences
