Not really. Is it Firefox you are trying to open? What folder? What system are you using?
im using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit
the thing is when i try to open firefox he cant find firefox.exe then i try from the directory file using the firefox.exe but still cant open the firefox
For Windows computers, look here;
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox or C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
man i dont suck so much at pc i opened from the directory too
it doesnt work same message
Open your file browser. Have it go to C:\ In the search bar (should be upper left), type Firefox. Then wait. Once the search is done, look for Firefox.exe Look and see what folder it or they are listed in. Post the information here.
man the executable file is busted
i reinstalled mozila and opened via the folder in C/: still says it cant find the firefox.exe
even tho the firefox.exe is there i click on it and it says it cant find firefox.exe
Remember the search I told you to do? What folder(s) was Firefox.exe located in?
Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- Anti-Rootkit Utility - TDSSKiller
- AdwCleaner (for more info, see this alternate AdwCleaner download page)
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

This was the best I could do with the greek keyboard in Google Translate.
"It is not possible to find the "file path". make sure you typed the name correctly and re proapathiote"
- Is the file hidden? If you right click and look at the Properties, is Read Only or Hidden selected?
- In that same menu, if you select "Restore to a previous version" does it open?
- If you right click the white space of the File window and select Refresh, is the file still there?
- Can you run it as an administrator?
- Last: Have you tried a new install? Is there another program that might be stopping it from opening?
