my computer said it shut down because it got too warm. I checked and cleaned my fans and restarted the computer. Now, when I try to load Firefox, I get a message - "Couldn't load XPCOM" After trying restart twice, it's still giving me the same message whenever I double click on my Firefox logo. I tried the software list in my programs files, and still get the same message. What to do?

Go to an electronics store and buy a can of compressed air. Every once in a great while, blow out the fan and vents.

Now, when I try to load Firefox, I get a message - "Couldn't load XPCOM"

Let’s do a full clean re-install;

Download Firefox For All languages And Systems {web link}

Save the file. Then Close Firefox.

Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86)

Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac

Linux: Check your user manual. If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it. See Install Firefox on Linux; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux

If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory. http://www.mozilla.org/firefox#desktop ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Look for, and remove any Mozilla or Firefox program folders. Do not remove the Mozilla Thunderbird folder if there is one.

Do Not remove the profiles folder.

After rebooting the computer, run a registry scanner if you have one. Then run the installer. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If there is a problem, start your Computer in safe mode and try again.
