mozglue.dll = Firefox = Mozilla Foundation

Download Firefox Full Version For All languages And Systems {web link} Save the file. Then;

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

Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.

• Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory.

Look for, and rename any Mozilla or Firefox folders by adding .old to them.

Now run the full installer. If all goes well, remove the OLD folders when you are done.

Hello Well unfortunately it did not work. I renamed all folders. Even did a click on an old FF link in the start menu. It could not find FF. So I did the fresh install. Strange thing though. When it did install, it opened and I saw me persona and all bookmarks were there. I though for sure I would have to re-install or re-set those. Anyhow, it froze up on my second click to a page. Error: Plugin-Container: about: mozglue.dll

Thank you for your assistance. I must have other computer issues.

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

Firefox comes in two or more folders on all computers. They are;

Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And one folder in the profile of each user on the computer.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user folders would not be effected.
