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 have read too many misleading and uniformed statements about installing and enabling Flash Player in Firefox. However after reading way too many comments one little tidbit made as an afterthought by a respondent GOT MY ATTENTION. it said, " be sure Firefox is closed [as well as IE]. Everyone knows to down load and install one has Firefox OPEN because you go to the arrow and click on the executable. WRONG. You must close Firefox and go find the executable somewhere in your download folder and execute it from explorer. The Voila it all works fine and Shockwave shows up in your Add-ons ready for action. Hope this helps all.

Missing mozglue.dll when launching Firefox

Hi, I'm getting an error "The program can't start because mozglue.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem." when launching Firefox. Firefox was working last night. I have Windows 7.

I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it from latest version from Mozilla website but got same error when I launched Firefox again. I have tried reinstalling Firefox about 4 times but this did not help to fix the issue.

Would it help fix the issue if someone provides me a copy of mozglue.dll to place in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ on my computer?

Please help. Thanks.

Regards, Andrew


Request for information added here where it will be seen

Hi, there seem to be a couple of other users affected by this reading this thread (judging by 30 users clicking "I have this problem too").

It would be helpful if you could chime in as well & report what antivirus software (& sandboxing software, if any?) you are using on your system. Also if you take a look into your Firefox program folder: Is the mozglue.dll file actually missing there?

Firefox program folder is in one of these locations:
Windows 32-bit users: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
Windows 64-bit users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

I tried to remove Yahoo by uninstalling and re-downloading the latest version as previously instructed but it is still there on the new installation. I am not a technician and do not want to start searching or removing registry places. I never asked for this service to be placed on the Mozilla page and I watched very carefully when downloading the program but there was no tick or untick place. It would be appreciated if someone could please explain in simple terms how to get rid of it PERMANENTLY

When I view databases through Firefox, the date/day format is set at month, day, year (US style), whereas I need day, month, year, I work in the UK and the "wrong" format is VERY confusing and could lead to errors/mistakes. IE has that format but I don't want to revert to using that.

I have Windows XP Professional English SP3 installed in an Oracle Virtual Machine. For some reason or another, Internet Explorer stopped browsing to pages having SSL (https). I went to several web pages on the internet. They said this and that, but I managed to narrow it down to the SSL part. I recently received an update to Oracle Virtual Box, so that can also be the culprit. I also have another XP Professional English SP3 virtual machine with no additional software installed besides antivirus software, and in that machine, I had installed a pretty fresh version of Mozilla Firefox, so I tested it, and there was no problem at all surfing, but Internet Explorer refused to display the web page. This is why I would like to have a link to the above mentioned version of Firefox, as you stated in another thread that that particular version was the last one to be supported by Windows XP.
