comment Coordinate points not lining up with a preexisting map on QGIS
In this case, you have swapped longitude and latitude. Florida is -81°E, while Antarctica is -81°N.

It might be helpful to put the path in quotation marks, since it contains a blank.

comment QGIS freezes /crashes and Minidump-Analysis
Have you tried deactivating/removing all plugins? There are still bugs in some of them that consume a lot of RAM during digitizing sessions.

Sounds that they are wrongly assigned to EPSG:2237. Can you copy the CSV file inside your operating system to another filename, and add that layer as delimited text to the canvas, choosing EPSG:4269? If you are not asked, take a look under Settings -> Options -> CRS. CRS for new layers should be set to Prompt to avoid mistakes. On-the-fly-reprojection should be enabled.

These are surely decimal degrees, and the points seem to make sense (see my extended answer). Where do they show up for you?

@user3667365 have a look at commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pacific_Ring_of_Fire.svg, which claims commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Gringer as the author, with vector data from evl.uic.edu/pape/data/WDB

Where did you get the coordinates in the CSV from, and how large is the offset in meters? Can you provide sample coordinates of points that can be recognized in Openstreetmap or Google imagery?

comment Change the actual coordinates in a shapefile (QGIS)
Can you add the content of the .prj file, and the extent given by Rightclick on the layer, Properties, Metadata, Properties field?

Degree coordinates should be fine, using EPSG:4326 WGS84 or EPSG:4269 NAD83, but they should be in longitude-latitude order, and decimal degrees instead of degrees-minutes-seconds. Longitudes in the US must be negative.

They have a world coastline, you have to cut it between Europe and Asia where you think it should be. A simple task with QGIS.

It surely helps if you can share the files. And a picture of your transformation settings window might be helpful too.
