Following a Windows 10 update, I tried to open Firefox and the following popup message appeared. "the code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." I have tried several times to download the latest version of Firefox, but during it's installation the same error message appears. How can I fix this problem and get Firefox to work normally.

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.

In that case, I would install both 32-bit and 64-bit "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019" downloads, (x86: vc_redist.x86.exe and x64: vc_redist.x64.exe) from https://support.microsoft.com/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Thanks, FredMcD. Your solution worked! Small victories. I will be forever in your debt, just don't try to collect!
