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.

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.

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.

A message has come up saying that an update is ready and should be downloaded.

Question: Will I lose the websites/tabs that are on the top bar or will they all be reloaded automatically?

Many thanks

Restoring a saved profile

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

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!

I am regularly using the latest version of Firefox but after doing some research online I decided to reinstall an older version of firefox by clicking Firefox 50.1.0.dmg, a file I found in my downloads as well as well as in the applications folders on my mac.

I was amazed to find when I started this older version of firefox fresh off the reinstall that all my tabs from the last time I used it (perhaps as long as three years ago) popped open and all my bookmarks and history were there as well. However this was short-lived because when i closed it and sought to restore the tabs I was unsuccessful and the bookmarks and history were gone too.

I then thought it would be possible to recreate this by using Time Machine and restore Firefox 50.1.0.dmg file from a recent backup but this did not bring back the tabs.

So I was wondering if this was simply a fluke and if not (is there such a thing as a fluke event when it comes to computers?!), why can I not recreate the event using Time Machine?

The Firefox Get Started is in the toolbar so I got in that way and went to 'Refresh Firefox' which seemed to work okay but I am still getting the Google 'server can not be found' page.

Firefox has been consistently misbehaving in that it will not launch but shows as being open. Quitting the app and trying to re-launch achieves nothing but frustration. I tried starting in Safe Mode but no response so deleted from apps, downloaded a new copy and tried re-installin..After several failed attempts all I can get is a dialog box that tells me it is 'preparing to copy to applications'. The process never completes. Please help. I need clear, step by step instructions, please, preferably with screenshots of critical steps. Do not assume that I have a great depth of knowledge about things Apple or their OS X or you may as well write the reply in Swahili. I shall not comprehend. With gratitude, JohnjackS
