I was forced to uninstall and reinstall Firefox because I got this System Error:

"The code execution cannot proceed because of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fi this problem."

I did this and now when I open firefox and click on a bookmark nothing loads. It seems like somehow it cannot communicate. Do you have any ideas how to fix this?

I uninstalled Mozilla VPN and then it got a runtime error. After trying to refresh Firefox I was forced to do an uninstall and clean reinstall. However now it doesn't even load. Fortunately Chrome is still working so I can get online and ask this question: how do I do a full reinstall to get a browser that loads? I'll be happy to run any diagnostics that I can.

How do I disable the login prompt for Password? I was on the phone troubleshooting a site I was having problems logging into, and the login for Password kept popping up every few seconds. Even after canceling it would pop up again after a few. I did not want to log into Password because the previous saved username/password would mess up the troubleshooting.

Since the update to the new Firefox (92.0), quite a umber of sites cant load anymore as a secure connections cannot be established. This does not pertain some ark web sites, but sites from reputable companies which had previously loaded without issues. Indeed, the mobile browser still happily displays the sites now forbidden by Firefox.

I found that an update of Edge created equal same issues with that browser.

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Manage Exceptions button for cookies is not working for me since FF88 or 89, don’t remember which version precisely. I click on the button and the dialogue box that would normally appear to set exceptions does not pop up. Moreover it looks like when I click on the button the user interface on that tab freezes for a period. My FF profile is customised. I know if I start with a blank profile the issue goes away. I have another that works fine. However I would rather try to fix this issue in my current profile. I poked around in about:config but so far have had no success.

Any ideas? I searched google but could not find anything. Also checked mozilla bugzilla a while back without success. I am using FF 92 on Arch Linux.

The Home page row of shortcuts are all blank.

Another weird thing is FF doesn't show up in my apps. I just added another FF, which had the same problem and deleted it.
