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.

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

I never had an Firefox account i never used sync. I had a problem with setting firefox as standard webbrowser and the solution for that was reinstalling the browser... The desription said that all would be saved (tabs and passwords) and i only would have to reinstall the browser. Now suddenly i dont have anything that was on before and the browser is completly different.

Can sync use the information that is supposedly allready on my desktop to regain my data or is theere nothing i can do? If so that would be the reason to never use this browser again.

Thank you for your time

I upgraded to Catalina (Mac OS 10.15.6) from High Sierra and now Firefox 79.0 won't open most web pages--it just displays a blank window and a little dot dancing left & right in the tab. A few web pages (e.g., support.mozilla.org) work OK. I restarted Firefox in safe mode; rebooted the system; and searched System Preferences/Security & Privacy in vain for a request from Firefox but nothing helps. Suggestions?

Also, Catalina crashes and restarts about twice a day, so far always when I'm out of the room, but I don't know if Firefox has a hand in it.

Hello everyone,

 I just bought a Macbook Air and want to use Firefox. Pardon my ignorance, I am not tech savvy, for I've a basic question. I started to install Firefox by clicking on the download button but the following message popped up: 

"Do you want to allow downloads on 'www.mozilla.org'? You can change which websites can download files in website preferences."

 I do not know what is right: to click on "cancel" or "allow" to proceed? I haven't a clue what is the right choice. I am not going to do anything beyond the basic, everyday stuff on my laptop, just want to make the smart choice to begin with, keepin' it simple. Thanks everyone!

Hi, I am running the french FF 79.0 64 bit I just started to download the latest iso of debian 10.5 from the official Mirror and got the FF warning that it contains a virus. I am not sure if you have a team to check false positive as this is the official site and that it was released only yesterday https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-dvd/debian-10.5.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso and I am getting worried after I got this message.

Hello Community,

I'm new here ;)

My Question is:

Why didn't the new version 79.0 install itself automatic like the other versions did before? I should download it from the Homepage and install it (maybe deinstall the Browser before). I got v.78.0.2 64bit on a Windows 10 desktop.

Thank you, friendly regards,

Robert

Update to the most recent Firefox Browser Version unsuccessful. 'Automatic update' option is active, but I receive a failure message like "... could not be updated to the newest version". I'm stuck at version 69 or so. Manual update equally unsuccessful - I tried the commonly known tips already. Windows 8 PC, active user profile is not 'administrator' (this was not a problem in the past). P.S.: I'm sending thsi message from a different PC (... wher updating Firefox no problem) - so educated guesses below may be misleading

Ever done something and wish you hadn't. I upgraded my 32 bit Firefox install to 64 bit and it's all gone horribly wrong. The Firefox icon has a wee shield on it and when I try to run it I'm constantly asked if I want Firefox to update my PC.

I've tried uninstalling and re-installing several times with no success. It looks like I have 4 options

  • Forget using Firefox (don't want to do that)
  • Buy a new PC (can't afford that)
  • Plead with the experts on here to help me get it fixed.
  • Rollback my PC to yesterday!

I'm running windows 10 build 1903 on a Lenovo all in one PC. Please please please can someone help?

I replaced the HDD in my iMac, and in the process of copying data and applications back to the new HDD from various backups, my olngtime Firefox profile got lost. I have now retrieved it from what I think is the last computer backup. I can't quite achieve getting my new version of FF (78.0.2) on the new HDD to recognize and use the longtime profile. I really miss my bookmarks and logins/passwords. (No, I didn't have Firefox Sync set before this.) Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

The Firefox Installer is WAY too simple for my needs. How? There isn't any "Custom Installation" or Advanced" option. When you open the installer, it just installs Firefox. What I want is something to let me choose where to install Firefox. Anyone know how I can do this? I really like firefox, but the installer is WAYYY too simple, please make an advanced options menu, and tell my WHY you made the installer so SIMPLE. How can we change if it creates a start menu folder, or desktop icon? We cant! Please make the installer more advanced, can someone PLEASE tell me how to change the installation location?
