Hello,

It started last night: Firefox stopped working.

I've been trying to reinstall it for 4 hours now and each time I do so, it crashes first "hmm for some reason blabla" then I have to install it another way from the same website and it says "your download was interrupted"

I can see the firefox logo on my desktop after i install it but a blue circle just goes round and round.

I ve uninstalled and reinstalled it 50 times, it changes nothing. cleared the caches also.

the other weird thing is that windows doesnt detect when i uninstall firefox. the picture is still there an hour after the fact as if the uninstalling was still happening

Please help me, i dont want to be stuck with google chrome for ever !

for some reason i cant interact with firefox. the mouse cant click on it. it freezes.

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!

Firefox Installer gives error "VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found"

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/linux-x86_64/

Any help would be appreciated.

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it? Thanks in advance! Pete

I have been getting notification to update Firefox but every time I try, it won't work. I have tried from the menu. I have tried updating from mozilla.org. I have tried downloading a new copy. Either the download doesn't work or the execution doesn't work. I temporarily disabled my virus protection and firewall just in case, but that didn't help. My next thought was to delete the Firefox copy I have. But what if I continue to not be able to install? Can anyone help with something other than what the website suggests? Thank you!
