Firefox won't start and tried all troubleshooting options in Windows 10 Pro (64-bit)
Firefox was running fine but few days ago, cannot get Firefox to start. Tried to uninstall, reinstall but didn't work. Tried uninstall, shutdown, reinstall and didn't work. Tried profile manager but it would not start so deleted the profile.ini file. Still won't start. When I look at Task manager, no processes for Firefox are running. Is there something else I should try to get working or should I just not use anymore?

What version of Firefox and where are you getting it from?
Try this option. https://www.howtogeek.com/399290/how-to-use-windows-10s-new-sandbox-to-safely-test-apps/
Did you recently uninstall an application that was using Visual C+ runtime components?
You can check for issues caused by a corrupted or incomplete Visual C++ installation that is missing runtime components (Redistributable Packages) required by Firefox, especially VCRUNTIME140_1.dll.
See "Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022":
You may also have to install the Visual Studio 2013 Redistributable Package. You need to reboot the computer.
