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 uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

I’m running a windows 8.1 computer with several open tabs in my browser. This computer crashed and I can’t get back into windows to sync up (I’ve tried booting from various sources, automatic repair, etc. it just won’t boot up). I hope that I’ll be able to extract my important files from my hard drive. I’m setting up a new windows 10 computer. My question is, can I copy over a file from my old computer to my new computer that Firefox will recognize and open up the tabs that I was last working on from my old computer? I have not synced, but the last time that I was able to use my old computer I did close Firefox cleanly, and I was able to log off from windows with no serious issues. Hopefully there is a file that I can copy over which will simply allow me to continue working on my open tabs. Thanks in advance.

Upon the last update (v.83), my favourite Flash golf game "World Golf Tour" ceased to work.

The makers of the game have already taken steps to move to a different platform on January 1st ... but the existing Flash version still works perfectly ... until YOU came along!

Your so-called "update" made it impossible to even load World Golf Tour's menu screen - I heard the music, but the graphics were frozen.

I'm no Sherlock - but this problem only occurred when Firefox updated.

It took me ages to downgrade back to v.82.3 - but WGT loaded perfectly when I did it.

Proving that it's YOUR fault! So don't give me this "most problems are caused by other peoples' software" stock answer crap.

I WILL upgrade to the latest version of Firefox on January 1st, not one second before.

Is there any way I can turn off the "Download Firefox Update Reminder" until then?

It's really annoying.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

I am currently on Firefox 84.0 on Windows 10.

Every time I download any type of file, Firefox puts the file inside of (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. This is extremely frustrating because I have to manually move the files to my 'Downloads' folder every time I download a new file. I have changed my settings numerous times. In Options > General > Files and applications. I have selected the "Save files to" and I have changed it to many different locations and my files still end up in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local >Temp. I have even resorted to selecting the setting "Always ask you where to save files." After closing and reopening the browser, I try to download something and Firefox never prompts me to select a download location (Contrary to my settings). Firefox just automatically downloads the file and puts it in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

After looking for solutions online I have went into "about:config" and I found out that "browser.download.dir" was already set to "C:\Users\tmmor\Downloads" (My intended location) and "browser.download.lastDir" was already set to the same location. I have also set "browser.download.useDownloadsDir" from false to true. Firefox still puts my downloads into (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

I am also the administrator on my device. I am not aware of any windows settings that are blocking Firefox from putting my downloads into my "Downloads" folder. Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome put my downloads into my "Downloads" folder every single time I download something, why cant Firefox do the same?

I also do not believe that any of my extensions or plug-in's are causing this issue, I have very few extensions and plug-in's.

Firefox is persistent at saving my downloads to (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. I have never gotten Firefox to save my downloads to my intended location (The downloads folder). Can anyone please instruct me how to resolve this issue. This is my last resort to solving this problem, nothing has worked for me. Thank you for your time, this experience has been stressful for me.

This problem has been bugging for a few months. I'm using Chromium now but would like to switch back to Firefox if a solution could be found. I'm not holding my breath as I've tried almost all suggestions. The thing is, Firefox just does not tell me why it cancels my download. It surely knows why it does it, so why not just split it out to help people fix it. My question then is, how do I tell Firefox to tell me why it fails?
