So I was cleaning out my SSD of a bunch of junk files and I think I might have deleted a file Firefox needs as when I open Firefox it seems to just blank with the search bar and when I try to go to say YouTube nothing loads. So I tried to do a fresh redownload of Firefox and the installer just this error saying "The code execution cannot proceed because vcruntime140_1.dll was not found" can someone help me get Firefox working properly again?

When I try to use my existing Firefox account login on my new Win 10 laptop, it tells me the password is incorrect. I have tried this both manually and with a password manager; fails either way. (This question has been posted using my Win 10 desktop PC, using that very login.)

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

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.

Hello All,

I am trying to import passwords & logins from a .csv file to FF version 82.0 I have enabled "import from a file" option and have a .csv file which I exported from FF version 81.0 I believe. I click on import from a file and browse to the file, click Open, and the dialog box disappears, BUT, the passwords don't appear in FF Lockwise, even after I restart FF. Makes me want to switch to Chrome when crap like this happens, or rather doesn't happen. Any help and advice gratefully received.

TIA, Dave.

Due to printer software I am forced to migrate family laptop from linux mint to windows 10 Both systems use version 82.0 (64bit), firefox just got installed on fresh windows 10 install, I opened it browsed a little to create history files and closed to swap it with linux history/passwords/tabs/bookmarks But in windows 10 firefox seem to have different file structure, and didn't recognize old version Have file structure changed or there are steps I missed or (unlikely) I messed up with file location, main mozilla/firefox folder path is still there

Will online synchronization of firefox just be as good as hard file copy from one system from another? I think this might be easiest, yet not perfect solution

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!
