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.

I tried Mozilla VPN but it would never connect. So I uninstalled and cancelled. Then I got a persistent vcruntime140.dll not found error. I uninstalled iTunes and legacy Microsoft Visual Suite apps. Now nothing will load. Not about pages. Not password pages. Not websites. Nothing. Have uninstalled and refreshed Firefox multiple times. Have restarted PC multiple times. Have turned off firewall and virus protection. Nothing works. nothing loads. Thanks for your thoughts!

web pages don't display but address is shown at tabs, can't see options but other menu options seem to be okay. I uninstalled and erased all related data (I could find) multiple times and reinstalled multiple times but problem remains. I tried refresh, safe mode, etc. At installation I get error VCRUNTIME140_1.dll not found, a susequent installation finishes without errors. I am sending this from another system because I can't use the problem unit for this post. The problem system is similar to this one. I am puzzled and seek help.

Firefox on a Windows 10 (Build 19042.1052) that

It starts and seems to run without hanging or crashing. I can enter an url, but it doesn't do anything. The Viewport just stays white. Also nothing happens if clicking on a bookmark. Or the settings. I was able to open the about:support page via the menu, but not by entering it into the adress bar.

Here are the things that I already tried to no avail: - updated to the latest version - Incognito mode - Troubleshoot mode - graphics card driver is up to date - reinstallation - Cleaning Firefox - delete firefox profile - clearing the start cache - downgrade to version 88.0.1

It is weird, that the about:support page works when opened from the menu but not when entered into the adress bar, right? This means that content can be displayed, but you cannot navigate to it via the address list. But then why don't bookmarks work either?

By the way: It is not a network Issue. Chrome and Edge work, and also the problem persists across multiple different networks.

I got a new Lenovo Laptop and cant get Firefox to load a webpage. Here's what happens and what I've done 1. I install Firefox and during install get error below, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll Not Found. I then click OK and Firefox Installs but when I load it no webpages will come up just a black screen no indications it is even trying to load the page, no error message. It does nothing. Cant even open Google.com 2. I looked in MS forums and they say to install Visual C++. Did every x86 and X64 version I could find. Still have the problem even after uninstalling Firefox and reboot. 3 Have McAfee, and took Firefox off the Safe list then put it back on. 4. Went to try and find the file but can't on a reputable website. So I looked for this file on my Dell Laptop and Asus Desktop. Both have Firefox installed and it works fine. Get this, NONE of my other two computers have that exact file name anywhere. VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL! They have 140.DLL and a few other 140.dll with different variation but no 140_1.dll? So how does Firefox run on 2 other computers without this DLL but not on this new one? They are all Windows 10 Would appreciate any help. Seems to be a Firefox or Lenovo Issue just not sure. If anyone know how to get the DLL from MS let me know.

I tried to install the Snapchat filters after watching "Cat Lawyer" - and I got a VC++ Runtime error. Firefox stopped loading too with the same error.

I removed the Snapchat filters app; repaired the VC++ Runtime error in add/remove programs - and now I see the symptoms as follows:

1. Launch Firefox from FF Icon.

    a) Bookmark clicks do nothing.  
    b) Type in a URL and nothing happens.

2. Launch Firefox from a ZOOM meeting link (and presumably other links) works - the page loads. And , once I have done that , the firefox browser works normally.

I can probably just uninstall/reinstall - but if anyone knows how to solve this I'd rather not lose all my saved pwd and history.

Running: MS Surface, Windows 10.

I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll.

I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

So I have to say that may be office365 app has removed some important files that were shared. I haven't installed office365 as I use office pro 2010 which still works fine. Im used that snarky edge browser at the moment.

Any ideas?

When opening Firefox, a window opens with menus and toolbars visible, but nothing loads or opens up when navigating the application. No websites are loading, no menus are opening such as options or add-ons, and not even the mozilla landing page is loading. I have tried doing a "Refresh". I have tried doing a clean reinstall. I have run virus scans to see if malware was preventing it from opening websites. I am having no issues with other browsers, just Mozilla Firefox. I am unsure what to do if even a Firefox reinstall is not working. The application wont even let me enable/disable add ons to see if that may be causing the problem.

Hello, Something strange happened during a recent Firefox update, not sure if it was something I did, or computer related, but now Firefox does not function. The browser will open but will not load any websites. Also, settings page will not open. If Firefox browser is closed and reopened a message is shown stating "Firefox is already running but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window".

My troubleshooting actions: Installed/Uninstalled firefox several times, removed c:\ProgramData\Modzilla folder - status/functionality mentioned above does not change.

Windows running on target computer is completely updated and patched.
