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.

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

I am a Linux user. So I have a folder called .moziila. Firefox use this folder to save settings and so on. If you are a Windows user you also have this folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla.

So I have a folder (Linux) /home/name/.mozilla/firefox/rt7gtt8p.default/ (I will call it System Folder later)

If I would be a Windows user I would have this folder here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default (I will call it System Folder later)

But I want to have a folder called "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder. I had it and I want enable it folder again.

How can I enable "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder? My goal is to have a file called recovery.jsonlz4. Without this folder Firefox will not create recovery.jsonlz4 for me. So I don't have a folder "sessionstore-backups" and I don't have a file called "recovery.jsonlz4" but I want to have it, but how? Maybe I need to add something to about:config?

The official instructions on Thunderbird 68.12 state:

Configuring Filelink To use Filelink, you must first create a new account (or configure an existing account) with an online storage service provider.

   At the top of the Thunderbird window, click the Tools menu and select Options, or click the menu button fx57menu and choose Options.
   Select the Attachments panel and choose the Outgoing tab. 

Sounds easy, but my 'Options' menu has no 'Attachments' panel to select, thus no 'Outgoing' tab to select.

The problem is that every time I try to sign in my account I see this message: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error. " This message is looks like mozilla's prank, because someone needs to sign in first to get help! As I try to get help, "support mozilla" is drive me to an endless loop in Mozilla.org.

After several minutes (I think about 15minutes) I don't know why and how but I'm in! This is happened every time I try to sign in my account!

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

Sorry to be a pain but I am still having problems with the "Autofill logins and passwords" setting. Yesterday I had two replies but one was way over my old head. I got so far but then I was at a loss as to which files it would be safe to try and delete so I didn't delete any. The other reply was easier to understand but alas it also didn't work. I tick the "ask to save logins and passwords" and the "Autofill logins and passwords" boxes and after I do this all works fine. However if I leave my Firefox browser for any reason and then re-login to Firefox these settings, along with "Remember History" have all been deleted so that I then have to tick and alter these settings again. Now for the other strange part Firefox on my android phone is synced with my desktop Firefox and I don't have any problems, all logins and passwords work fine. I have up to date Windows 10, Firefox version 81 and the latest TREND maximum anti-virus protection. I have tried exiting TREND and doing a restart of Firefox with add-ons disabled and that makes no difference. Finally I even uninstalled Firefox and managed to install an earlier version and that didn't solve the snag either so I have updated to the latest version again.
