Cannot Surf Web on Firefox
Recently I have been unable to surf the web on my Firefox Browser. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it a few time to no avail. I have checked my Firewall settings and Firefox is not blocked. I know other browsers work as I am sending this through Edge.
I checked my event viewer and found that Firefox was being denied access (see attached pic). Any suggestions to get this resolved would be welcome.
so... it works now. In-between my post and now, I repaired Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable, both x64 and x86. I have no idea why this worked.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Does Firefox start and display a normal user interface, but gives you errors like server not found? What are the symptoms?

Good to hear. It seems that some software installers and uninstallers can remove or modify files that are vital to Firefox, which is bizarre and annoying, but you found the solution.
