I have had this issue before and uninstalling and reinstalling has fixed it in the past. Today when I opened firefox it prompted me to update , which I did without thinking. Subsequently, it stopped working. I have tried: restarting my PC, running in troubleshooting mode( it wouldn't even open when I tried this), uninstalling and reinstalling using the internet installer, uninstalling and reinstalling using the offline installer ( tried on multiple hard drives, so I don't think hardware failure is the issue), installing an older version of fire fox, and installing the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version. The attached images show what displays upon trying to launch firefox. nothing loads, not typing an address into the search bar, not clicking on a bookmark, the only UI element that will display is the 3 horizontal line setting menu.

win.gBrowser is undefined sounds like a problem, even though it is in the Telemetry module, which is not essential to running Firefox.

In another thread, a user reported that a recent update of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (version 415) may be causing symptoms similar to the VC Runtime problem. If you have MBAE, it should have a setting to exempt Firefox. You could test whether that makes any difference.

Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet. {web link}

You can check for issues caused by a corrupted or incomplete Visual C++ installation that is missing runtime components (Redistributable Packages) required by Firefox, especially VCRUNTIME140_1.dll.

See "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019":

You may not need the latter (32-bit version) if you use 64-bit Firefox. You may have to reboot the computer.

Unfortunately this only worked the first time. Firefox updated again and it will no longer work.

Hi ecbs5001, did you reinstall the Visual C Runtime files from Microsoft?

I think there might be a deeper issue here. I tried to install and run waterfox, but it displayed the same symptoms.

I have reinstalled the Visual C Runtime files using the links you provided. I restarted my PC and tried reinstalling Firefox, however I am still getting the same issue. When I have gotten it to work it is always an auto update that breaks it again.

The first screenshot in your original post -- the one with the blank alert box -- is interesting. Are you still getting that empty box?

If you call up the Browser Console using Ctrl+Shift+J, are there any error messages listed?

I made an exception for Firefox, that seemed to do the trick.
