Firefox Installer gives error "VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found"

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.

I wish to download and install Firefox 52 ESR for a PC with Windows XP. But, I cannot download it on that WinXP PC. I must download it on another PC running Win 10. It should be an .exe (or somethng like that) file, which I can then transfer to the XP PC and run it to install FF 52 ESR.

If I try to download FF on the Win 10 PC, it downloads (I think) the version that is best for Win 10 PC. I do not see any place where I can specify that I want FF 52 ERS, and not the version for Win 10. That is the problem.

Please advise how I can do the above.

Thanks in advance

I just updated Firefox and ended up with Quantum. How in the world can I get my previous version back, and get rid of Quantum? I have never been so disappointed in Firefox as I am right now. I never, ever would have clicked update if I knew I would end up with this.

I don't want to be completely negative about Firefox for Android 79, but it doesn't work for me. Extensions that I relied on are no longer supported, and the new functionality doesn't make up for that.

Is there anywhere I can download the .apk for a previous version and install that?

I tried using Thunderbird to check my Office 365 email, with the following settings

IMAP: outlook.office365.com Port: 143 SSL: STARTTLS

SMTP: smtp.office365.com Port: 587 SSL: STARTTLS

Normal Password

All the settings are retried by Thunderbird once I enter the IMAP and SMTP details.

However upon clicking done, there will be a message saying "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password"

I have verified the username and password is correct, and also IMAP enabled for this account, but keep getting password wrong message.

Is there a safe and legitimate way to download Firefox on Android without using Google Play or signing into the phone with a Google account? I tried to navigate to the official download page but the only option I can find is to use Google Play which requires sign in. Searching online just leads to alternative app stores and sketchy apk files that I'm not so sure if I can trust.

I just updated to Firefox version 64 and noticed that you can no longer turn off update checks.

The only available options are "Automatically install updates" and "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

I administer a public access computer lab and don't want "A new version is available!" popups to appear while our patrons are using our computers.

Is there a way to turn off update checking in this version of Firefox? Perhaps in about:config?

I imported all my bookmarks from Internet Explorer 8 but not all of them came through. Then I exported the HTML file from IE and imported it into Firefox and all of them came through but got added onto the initial (partial) list. How do I remove the partial list of bookmarks so that I can avoid duplication ? Or how do I delete all the bookmarks from Firefox in one go so that I can import again from the IE HTML file  ?Thanks.
