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.

Where can I find offline installations for Firefox? Please don't say "https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/" like the previous 20 or so answers to this question. It simply doesn't work. All you get are Stub installers with no option to download only. I have gone as far as completely trying this and the only thing that I could achieve was to upgrade Firefox on the download computer. Why has this Full install thing been a never ending issue with Mozilla? Is it so hard to list these as well as the Installer version? Many people don't like installers.

I have a Tomcat server which I would like to visit via it's IPv6 address.

In IPv4, I would simply type http://<ipv4-address>:8080 in the URL bar.

In IPv6, I can't seem to find out what I have to type in the URL bar - every request I make sends me to my default search engine.

Among others, I tried the following:

http://[<ipv6-address>]:8080

http://[<ipv6-address>%eth0]:8080

To my understanding of RFC 5952, this should do the job.

However, also skipping the destination port doesn't seem to send me to the server on port 80 or 443:

http://<ipv6-address>

https://<ipv6-address>

I've even tried to add the host in my /etc/hosts, with any of those lines:

<ipv6-address>%eth0 foo

<ipv6-address> bar

Still, requests such as

http://[foo]:8080

http://foo:8080

http://[bar]:8080

http://bar:8080

also don't seem to work.

Firefox version in use is 44.0.2

Thanks for your help!

Ok I have a new problem with the new Firefox. I just updated my Firefox to the newest version. But while I’ve been using the old version I use a very good feature I liked about Firefox a lot .that was the cache folder and cache files used to create for using software like downloading so many kind of files like videos pictures and any content I’ve browsed on the net by Firefox. All those files been there in a folder in this location (C:\Documents and Settings\A\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\r52ck3aw.default\Cache) and I could use that to preview all those files but now when I go to that folder there is just like thousands folders and none of my file is there you only can find a few of them. Please don’t tell me that I no longer have that folder and cache files like the old versions? Please help?

Hi! I am aware that there are numerous articles about this problem, but unfortunately none of them solves my problem.

Very frequently, at least once a day (usually from 3 to even 7 times a day) my Mozilla Firefox freezes and I am forced to restart it. It typically occurs when I try to open a page with some interactive content in it (youtube, some fancy flash pages, even gmail document preview). When I try to close it, Windows pops up a message saying that "Firefox stopped working" and terminates the application itself, and then another window pops up, saying "Plugin Container for Firefox stopped working". It's usually either that, but sometimes Mozilla also shuts itself without any warning and the same message appears.

As for "script does not respond", it does happen as well, although way more seldom. Usually it happens on the pages with lots of images. The whole browser then freezes for couple of seconds, then it pops up a window saying that the script does not respond and asks whether I want to force it to continue or not. It doesn't make any difference which option I choose because usually the browser crashes anyway.

I am using version 34 and I made sure all my plugins and addons are up to date. I also disabled hardware acceleration and tried to reinstall whole flash thing. I wonder whether it's the fault of one of my addons, but I admit I am not too eager to try and disable them all and then test it one by one because it would take up way too much time. Apart from that, none of the previous solutions seem to help, and the problem really gets on my nerves because numerous times I lost a huge block of text I was writing. Now I learned to copy everything I write couple of times :/

Maybe the crash reports will help. I'll link them from the newest to the oldest (for some weird reason they are 3 crash reports from today, yesterday and 3 days ago - weird, because the browser has shut itself today at least twice, not to mention previous days):

https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ba7f5087-3d7d-4b2c-b9b1-04e6d2150105 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/72eaf792-5f06-445b-806c-cd7922150104 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/c3f81ff8-df10-45a6-8400-1c5912150103

I'll be glad for any help because, honestly, I can't stand it anymore. No reinstalling of Firefox or restoring settings to default have helped me yet.
