I am having trouble running any third party applications that are not created with pure apple native UI. Example, Google Crome, Firefox and Microsoft Word.
When I try launch one of the applications in question they continually bounce up and down in the Dock without ever launching. I have checked all the file permissions and the preferences to allow apps that are not downloaded from the app store to run, they are all correct.
I have also tried rolling back using time machine to a much older install and reinstalling everything, the applications work for a short time before breaking again.
I have also tried reinstalling all the applications, in addition I reinstalled Java and any other runtime tools that may be causing the problem with no luck. I have also tried the basic tricks like restarting the OS.
It may also be worth noting that when this problem first started happening some of my preferences reverted back to default, example natural scrolling turned back on.
I have looked in the system.log and see the following error repeated over and over again every few seconds, not sure if it is related, could indicate some ownership issues.

I also see this log message when launching Firefox, I don't see any messages when launching other problem applications
Nov 17 09:32:49 azula kernel: firefox (map: 0xffffff8041e393c0) triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff8041e393c0, region 0x7fff8d800000->0x7fff8da00000. While not abnormal for debuggers, this increases system memory footprint until the target exits.
