This morning, when I tried to open Firefox I got a message saying that Windows couldn't locate the file.

I originally just clicked on the icon on my screen.

I then tried going to the program file folder and opening by clicking on the exe file. Same message.

I tried downloading a new copy of Firefox.

The same message came up when I tried to open it.

I made Firefox an exception on my security software. No change.

Any ideas what to do next?

Hi,

I've been using firefox for a while on this computer now, but this morning I was hit with a popup saying: "Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

I have so far tried every fix I can find (which aren't many for this glitch), and none have worked. I have tried uninstalling and deleting all folders related to Firefox, and the new install still gives me the same error. My OS is Windows 10, and I have not had any problems with Firefox before this morning, nor have I made any changes to the files or anything of the sort. Just tried to run it and it gave me this.

I am at my wits end a bit with this. Help!

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?
