Firefox worked fine for me until last week. I tried to install a new copy and I get the following message -

THE CODE EXECUTION CANNOT PROCEED BECAUSE VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL WAS NOT FOUND. REINSTALLING THE PROGRAM MAY FIX THE PROBLEM.

No matter what I do, I cannot get this to install.

It appears to install but when I open Firefox and try to navigate to a website it is dead in the water. Will not connect to internet!

Please help!

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.

Hi there,

I am having difficulties today. I was downloading a surveying software program and it appears to have made changes to my computer, such that it destroyed my ability to use Firefox. I have uninstalled it and tried installing it several times . . . and I get the same error coming up (see attached screen save).

Can you assist me in being able to install Firefox again.

Thank you.

Firefox won't load any pages

I tried to install the Snapchat filters after watching "Cat Lawyer" - and I got a VC++ Runtime error. Firefox stopped loading too with the same error.

I removed the Snapchat filters app; repaired the VC++ Runtime error in add/remove programs - and now I see the symptoms as follows:

1. Launch Firefox from FF Icon.

    a) Bookmark clicks do nothing.  
    b) Type in a URL and nothing happens.

2. Launch Firefox from a ZOOM meeting link (and presumably other links) works - the page loads. And , once I have done that , the firefox browser works normally.

I can probably just uninstall/reinstall - but if anyone knows how to solve this I'd rather not lose all my saved pwd and history.

Running: MS Surface, Windows 10.

I have a customer who is unable to browse to any websites after version 81.0.2 was installed. They are also unable to open Options and other Menu items. Only Toolbar Menu item that worked was Help > About. I have tried using Firefox in Safe Mode, I have refreshed Firefox, and I have renamed the AppData > Roaming > Mozilla folder forcing it to create a brand new user profile. The only security programs running are Windows Defender. Chrome and Edge work fine, so customer will use one of those until Firefox is fixed.

When opening Firefox, a window opens with menus and toolbars visible, but nothing loads or opens up when navigating the application. No websites are loading, no menus are opening such as options or add-ons, and not even the mozilla landing page is loading. I have tried doing a "Refresh". I have tried doing a clean reinstall. I have run virus scans to see if malware was preventing it from opening websites. I am having no issues with other browsers, just Mozilla Firefox. I am unsure what to do if even a Firefox reinstall is not working. The application wont even let me enable/disable add ons to see if that may be causing the problem.

I uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

Hello,

when I updated the Windows 10 to it's latest version, all websites stopped showing in the Firefox browser. When I try to type a url and press enter, nothing is showing up (https://imgur.com/13i6kNc). Extensions are also not showing up (https://imgur.com/gfVqWap). Not even Firefox settings (https://imgur.com/xO0D2cJ). Other browsers are working normally (I tried Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome 84 and Opera 70).

Thank you for taking your time to read this.

How it happened: 1. I installed Anaconda(python3.7) and Visual Studio 2015 (to get the required C++ for TensorFlow) 2. Decided to uninstall Anaconda and Visual Studio 2015 and restarted which is when firefox gave the error vcruntime140_1. dll was not found. 3. I downloaded and installed vc_redist.x64 and restarted 4. Firefox does not give an error anymore but no websites appear (just bank screen). I can see the firefox dropdown tab for options, but clicking options does nothing


What I've tried: 1. Uninstalled firefox using an uninstaller that removes residual files 2. Re-installing firefox 3. Running firefox in safemode and clicking 'restore' as well as trying it in safemode


Chrome is working with no issues, but I prefer firefox.
