I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and the reinstalling Firefox. This did not solve the missing file problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox. This did not solve the problem. The file is still missing. When I click on my Firefox App, all I get is a blank screen. I am unable to use Firefox. This computer uses Windows 10 with a 64 bit. I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

I 1000% hate Yahoo, I prefer the Google Search. And Yahoo always opens up a new window. Is there an easy way to never allow Yahoo to take over the search? I do remove it (ha, seems like every day). But I would prefer to never have Yahoo take over the search.

Copy pasting text from an external application into Reddit.com comment box on Firefox entirely messes up formatting

Hi. When copy-pasting text with formatting (bold, italics, spacing) into any Reddit.com comment submission box (not post submission boxes) from any external text application (Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Pastebin) using Firefox (v88.0.1), all formatting is lost and seemingly random newlines are added. Instead of lines going from the entire space left to right, they are cut off in the center where newlines are added.

The text tends to look like this. And any bold and italic portions are removed. (Intended)

The text tends to look like this. And any bold and italic portions are removed. (Resulting)

When trying to delete this text and copy-paste additional times, ghost text appears that cannot be deleted but overlays on top of any additional text. Removing any parts of text seems to paste another copy and infinitely loop more of the pasted text, creating a horrible looking overlay of text that now looks like cryptic symbols because of the overlaying.

I posted and looked through Reddit's /r/help, and it seems that multiple people are reporting this issue, all using the latest version of Firefox and having the issue appear in the last few days.

I have already tried disabling extensions, launching in Safe Mode, clearing Firefox cache, manually troubleshooting settings in about:config, looking through all entries of about:support, refreshing the Firefox profile, completely reinstalling Firefox. The issue does not appear to be my installation, but rather a bug with the software on this version.

Any help is appreciated, I am totally stumped.

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

This only happens when I enable my adblocker, AdBlocker Ultimate. This is new behavior and was not occurring at the beginning of the week at least.

Reproduce: 1) Ensure adblocker is enabled 2) Select a playlist on youtube 3) Play first video 4) Select firefox's picture in picture icon 5) Wait for first video to end 6) Observe picture in picture closing when next video in playlist plays

This did not occur before and I was able to view youtube playlists in picture in picture without issue. Disabling adblocker seems to correct it but this is not a solution I'm willing to go with.

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

A.

I can use other browsers without images being blocked in yahoo mail but when I try and send an attachment as an image in the body of email instead of showing image it just shows text "inline image".

When I use other browsers and send an attachment as a image in the body of the email it shows the image without any problems.

When I receive an email with scanned images instead of seeing the image it shows text "scanned image".

The problem started in version 88.0 and continues in 88.0.1

Hi, I have not been able to edit / add to my bookmarks for some time. When I go into the Restore section it contains several dates and various bookmark numbers (alot of bookmarks are missing). When I went to restore to a previous date that had all bookmarks I got a message that it was 'Unable to process the back up file' and I have lost all of my bookmarks. In addition, I am transferring from an old iMac to a new one possibly via a Time Capsule back up and have concerns the whatever the problem is with Firefox it will automatically replicate to the new computer?

Normally use Edge. Using latest version of Firefox for something Edge doesn't do. I know how to get the Page Info (Tools/Click Padlock) but noticed in the popup context menu for this version that it is missing now when right clicking on a page or image. Only see View Page Source in the menu. Anyway to get the context menu back so it shows "View Page Info"? Maybe edit the "about:config page"?
