How do I fix this? Firefox won't start (it did a few days ago).

Version 87 running on Windows 10.

Error Msg: The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found.

There is a file: VCRUNTIME140.dll in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder.

I reinstalled Firefox but that didn't help.

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

Hi, I need to use alt+scroll to zoom in and out on a website I use regularly. However, often, I will use alt+scroll to zoom out and end up leaving the session as firefox backs out to the previous page. This means that I have to spend a long time logging back in and loading my page.

I have tried shortkeys, but it doesn't seem to support modifying shortcuts using the scroll wheel.

How can I disable this shortcut?

Thank you.

Whenever I play a video on amazon prime thru FF 88 it is SD. When I go to the options for video it says HD is unavailable even if best is selected. When the video first plays the HD icon will come up for about a second, but faded, than go away right after. Usually when it does that it becomes solid white and shows HD at 1080. I'm using Win 10 64-bit Pro 20H2.

When I try watching the same videos in Chrome I have no issues and the content plays fine in HD 1080p.

I tried removing all history, refreshing FF, uninstalling and re-installing my NVIDIA drivers but same issue. I am on 88.0. No add ons or themes. Just default FF after refresh. Nothing helps.

I have seen other reports of widevine crashing but I dont have that issue. FF just wont play Amazon video in HD anymore.

Edit:

After trying some things and completely uninstalling firefox from system and all folders I finally got Amazon to play HD 1080p content again, but only a short while.

For some reason on refreshed or completely new installs of FF 88 amazon would have issues and only play SD. Even if all folders were deleted before install. When I installed the previous version of FF to 87 content was once again playing back at HD 1080p. I than updated to 88 and it was ok but only for a bit.

Even though FF 87 installed and updated widevine, FF version 88 would update it again a short while later but the version numbers of widevine (4.10.2209.1) stayed the same. Whatever version 88 is doing to widevine it seems to cause a conflict preventing Amazon from playing videos in HD content.

Edit 2:

From my other computer which had not updated to 88 yet had widevine version 4.10.1582. I took all those files and replaced the ones in the folder for 4.10.2209.1. I have updates disabled for widevine now and Amazon is playing HD 1080p once again with no issues. So whatever the update did with widevine it is definitely causing a conflict with playing back HD 1080p content on Amazon Prime video.

When I try to screenshot and download an image it screenshots multiple images instead. My OS is Windows 10 and I'm having this problem when trying to screenshot and download an image from Instagram. I right click on the image as I always have and it screenshots and saves multiple images instead. I never had this problem before updating to Firefox 88 and I've been using the screenshot feature for well over two years. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and I'm still having the same problem. The image I'm trying to save is the one on the upper right.

I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click.

The import of the logins and passwords does not work on new Firefox 88.0.1. I've switched to new PC and I installed the same Firefox 88.0.1 as on old PC. I tried several times to sync old PC and new PC without success.

I exported logins to a file on old PC and I enabled import from the .CSV files on new PC. That does not work neither as I got almost all imports errors. I attached the print-screen.

On new PC even when I enter manually login and password on page the password is never saved. It looks like Lockwise is completely busted. Please let me know when could you fix this critical error ?

My vertical scroll bar is very thin, barely even visible, like 4 pixels thick. The problem is the same as already posted in these forums, both solutions were only temporary solutions. I'll state them here for simplicity:

a) The first step is to open the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" page and find the button to access the profile folder. You need to create a folder with the name chrome in this folder (name is all lowercase). In the chrome folder you need to create a plain text file with the name userContent.css (name is case sensitive). Paste in "*{scrollbar-color:auto!important; scrollbar-width:auto!important;}"

This worked but then some scroll bars were extremely thick, and even showed while watching YouTube videos.

b) Clearing the startup cache.

Again, this did seem to work, but only temporarily. I removed the file from step a) and it remained fine until a day or two later.

Since a few days, when I visit Google Maps, after completely loading the page (roads and buildings shown for a brief moment) the map becomes wholly black with just captions still readable.

Doing the following didn't fix: Restart Firefox. Update Nvidia Drivers (updated yesterday to 466.11, didn't resolve). Disable every add-on and setting default theme. Disable Hardware Acceleration from settings.

THIS temporarily fixed: Entering Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

So I assume the problem is in advanced settings. There are TONS of settings there. Any ideas? I 'd rather not go through a Firefox Refresh losing all site permissions/fine tuning for cookie settings/blocked content for every site made in years. I'm on Firefox 88, Windows 10 64bit ver. 2004, GeForce 950M, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM.


I put "again" in the title since another question about this is marked as solved for Firefox 68/69. Needless to say, I tried everything from that discussion (such as switching gfx.webrender.all), to no avail for the present issue.

How to edit the HTML-code of a local stored file been displayed in a tab of mozilla Firefox?

In Opera 12.16 in context menu an menu exists for that. Could not give more details on that because the system admins forbid to use that outdated software a few days ago. In the settings of Opera I font an Option to replace the built in editor with my favorite Notepad++.exe.

In that context menu on line below or above a meneu entry allowed to call the W3C.org Verifyer of the HTML-source code.

This few simple things allowed me to edit some HTML and CSS files to create HTML pages on my notebook and copying them on a server in local network made a simply knowledge sharing project up and running.

Since I am lo longer allowed to use Opera 12.16 I am searching for a similar solution within the mozilla Firefox. version 88. While looking at and searching in the list containing over 1200 add-ons I have fount W3C Validator but till now no solution for the editing task.
