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

New computer running Win 7. Install FF no problem. But then the icon disappears from the Start Menu and from the Taskbar.

When I go to the program location C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox there is only the generic icon for firefox.exe.

Program seems to work fine, but this is annoying. Thanks for the help.

Hello there, Mozilla........)

I have just checked my add-ons and I have been told to update my Shockwave Flash. I clicked on 'update now' and it sent me to a page where it details potential problems with the version I have and to update to version 14.0.0175 which (I think and hope) it did update. However, when I restarted my computer, I checked again and it still is saying 'update now'. As I will honestly admit, I am not all that 'tech savvy' and am not sure what I should do next. I would be extremely grateful if someone could get back to me with some advice on what I should do.

Yours sincerely

Hi there, I have just had to upgrade and get a new Pc and it has windows 8.1 which is awful. I only like to use firefox as my browser. I have tried to install it but it won't work. I cannot find any up to date information on the web as to whether firefox can be installed with Windows 8.1 I have a 64 bit operating system. Is there a way to do this? Or if not does anyone know if it will be available soon, or i'll have to use chrome which i don't like as much. I don't have much technical knowledge to do complicated things. I wonder if it works well on Windows 8 if i try and downgrade..... Not sure i know how to do that/ Any help be appreciated. thanks

Please can someone tell me why it's so hard to find an offline installer? I googled it and searched the forums and most of the links either don't work or send me to get online installers.

Also why don't they put 2 download links on the main page? 1 for download online installer and 1 for offline installer?

After about half an hour of searching i found a proper link to an offline installer that works. I wanted to thank brookspd who posted a question 2 years ago and one of the moderators responded. His hope was that his post would help and it helped immensly.

I understand that the forum is huge and there are many posts, is there any way of deleting all the posts of offline installers that don't actually help and put this one up? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ , it's the only one that i've personally found that actually works. I'm sure i'm not the only fustrated one here.

How To Make mozilla.cfg, override.ini, all-companyname.js, Files To Work Once And For All For All Users

I'm currently trying to apply a fix to the firefox browser (version 23.0.1) on over 250 computers. Setting default webpages, disabling annoying prompts like the default browser and importing bookmarks, and erasing the history on shutdown, or startup. This is very easily done modifying the pref.js file, but I will not edit that file, it's out of the question. Another FF update will erase or overwrite all of my modifications.

I run a computer lab in the university that is locked down using a Net Support School console. You don't need to look that up. Basically all websites are restricted except the ones the ones I whitelist. The websites we use have extensive API's for JS, CSS, Java, PHP, etc... We utilize technology in order for students to use graphing calculators, video's, and taking module test from these white-listed websites, like Pearson, or Aleks. Now with that said, cookies, and stored profile history become a problem, and on some day's up to 25% of the students using the computers need their entire history deleted in order for a page to load. I think I fixed this problem permanently by whitelisting backend sites importing plugins, and API's etc, that I found from the developers console. Whatever. What I've learned from all of this is that Firefox can be very customizable utilizing the "...\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg" and the "...\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\prefs\all-companyname.js" (or custom.js) The problem, is no matter what I try I can't get these to work. The closest I got was here:

http://www.intrntpirate.com/?p=615

Again, even that ^^ didn't work. I followed these directions to a "T". What is wrong with the above information provided in the link? Why is firefox making harder and harder for us to optimize it for massive deployments across a corporation and a university? I'm not going to do any fancy hacks to avoid the main issue. I need mozilla.cfg, and the all-companyname.js, and the override.ini files to work, if and only if they are still relevant.

These are what my files look like so far:

name: all-lmc.js
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("browser.startup.homepage", "https://(some url)");

name: override.ini
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
[XRE]
EnableProfileMigrator=false

name: mozilla.cfg
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
//
lockPref("privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown", true);
lockPref("privacy.sanitize.promptOnSanitize", false);
lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.prompted", 2);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.rejected", true);

I've tried using, and not using, the automatic mozilla configurator. I've tried changing lockPref to pref. Nothing works. Not the override.ini, not the all-lmc.js, and not the mozilla.cfg. I've wasted hours reading through blogs of experts telling us to modify files that don't exist, or beating around the bush. I'm done researching. If you have the answer or want to help me figure this out just remember to keep it simple. Please. I ultimately want to package all the config files, with a how to, in a zip folder onto our shared drive. To have FF customized and ready to deploy to different departments across campus.
