Hello. Recently I have been facing a problem on Firefox while running it. It says the following message: "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem".

I tried to reinstall it, but it did not work.

How can I solve this?

Let’s do a full clean re-install;

Note: Firefox comes in three or more folders on all computers. They are;

Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And two folders in the profile of each user on the computer for each Firefox profile for that user.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.

Save the file. Then Close Firefox.

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

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

Hi,

I'm not sure if my reply went through but I can't see it on my end, so I'm going to try and resend it.

It seems that you don't have the latest C++ installed on your computer. This support thread has the solution in it.

Hope this helps!

Hello. Thanks for the answer. My problem was that my last version of Microsoft Visual Studio was not up to date.
