Firefox does not install on Windows 8 Office

I am running Windows 8 on a Sony Vaio laptop.
I am trying to install Firefox in desktop mode, but it doesn't - well installation files downloads, then when you try to run it, the extracted file, nothing happens.
Help, please.


You can use one of them to start Firefox in Safe Mode:

  • On Windows, hold down the SHIFT key while starting Firefox with a double click on the shortcut to the desktop Firefox
  • On Mac, hold the Options key when starting Firefox
  • Help > restart with disabled modules

You can check the problems caused by a corrupt localstore.rdf file.

Create a new profile as a test to see if your profile is the source of the problems.

See "create a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a profile in the new profile, but make sure not to copy corrupted files.

    Hi Thomas,

    Long time no see...

    If FM7.2 is not officially supported, I think you must be in compatibility mode so that it can behave properly with Windows 7.

  • Microsoft Update for hp LaserJet 3015 PCL 5 driver does not install in Windows 7

    I use Windows 7 update.
    Microsoft Update for hp LaserJet 3015 PCL 5 driver does not install. He says 1 optional update is available almost every day, then when I try to install, it does not install and it says that the update is not necessary. Even once when I check updates, it says 1 optional update for the printer is available from Microsoft. And the story continues. I tried to reinstall the optional update, but the same problem persists perennielly

    Is this the driver you are looking for?

    Looking for HP for the pilot because it is better to get these live drivers from the manufacturer. TaurArian [MVP] 2005-2010 - Update Services

    No, these aren't the droids, uh, I mean the drivers he was looking for.

    In fact, it's better to get the new drivers from the HP website, you will notice the link you provided that the options only are available for this printer under Windows 7 drivers universal. I regularly have problems with universal drivers and strongly recommend to avoid as much as possible.

    I agree with the question of the original poster, which, after more than two years, remains unanswered by Microsoft. It seems that MS has a driver PCL 5 (not universal) updated specific 3015, but it fails to install the Windows Update control panel. I finally gave up on it, right click on the update and selected the option to hide it from view.

    Why bother with a solution when I use the button "Sweep-It-under-the-carpet" practice of Microsoft?

  • Firefox does not open on Windows 10 no matter what I try. Is there something that can solve this problem?

    I tried to contact support Windows 10 and they were useless. It was working fine all day and does not open all of a sudden.

    This sounds like a file in your Firefox profile may be damaged or not valid. To check if this is the case, you will need to create a secondary Firefox profile and test to see if you can open Firefox with this profile.

    This can be done using the Manager of profiles for Firefox which can be downloaded from Mozilla's FTP server. There is no installation required, the program is contained in a ZIP file. Simply extract the ZIP file and run the executable file inside.

    How to create a second profile Firefox, please see this support article:

    Note: Do not delete the old profile because if it is damaged, you may be able to recover your bookmarks and settings. For more information on how to proceed, please read the article of the recovery of data from an old profile .

  • Firefox does not install the Adobe Flash plugin

    Videos flash and flash Web sites no longer work in my Firefox browser. After you install the plugin and restarting the browser flash still does not work or even appear in the list of installed plugins. As far as I can tell that this is not a problem with Adobe Flash that I can still use it with Google Chrome.

    FYI - IE, Firefox and Chrome use different versions of the player in order to work in 1 browser Flash means nothing to the others.

    I would download the installer, close Firefox, uninstall Flash (from programs and features), restart the computer and try the installation program.

  • DeskJet 3000 J310: Driver for HP DeskJet 3000 J310 does not install on Windows 10

    We have a home network that has our 3000 DeskJet installed and available as a network printer device.  I can print is no longer after the upgrade to Windows 10 on my Lenovo ThinkPad.  I downloaded the full features and software for the DeskJet 3000 several times and restarted my computer Windows 10.  I also ran the doctor print and scan.  I finally found a message that the software and the driver would not install, but I can't understand why.  The DeskJet 3000 is listed as a printer, when I look at printers and Scanners in devices in the settings on my laptop, but the message is that driver is not available.  I am at a loss to know what to do next to resolve this problem.  My husband is still able to print using his office computer that is running an earlier version of Windows.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello @linda51!

    Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

    I see that after updating to Windows 10 you lost printing wireless Deskjet 3000.  I should be able to provide a few suggestions that may fix the problem.  I know that you have reinstalled several times without success.  I'm going to recommend that uninstall you the HP software, one more.   Once the uninstall is complete, it would be wise to perform a cleanup of the computer disk. A disk cleanup will improve the performance of the computer and remove the temporary files that may cause problems during the installation of the software. Once disk cleanup you must restart the computer and reinstall the HP software.

    To uninstall the HP software, click here: uninstall the HP software

    To perform a disk cleanup, click here: perform a disk cleanup (the link is for Windows 8.1 but the same steps for 10)

    To download the HP software, click here: HP Deskjet full feature software and drivers

    How do you have the printer connected to the computer?  If the printer is connected wireless, then it is possible that a firewall in the Windows operating system has been turned on and is now blocking of scanning.  I recommend to download HP Print and Scan doctor.  With printing and scanning doctor, you can temporarily disable the firewall that may block the printer from the computer.  If the printer is found, you need to turn your firewall on back to make sure that your computer is blocked.

    To download the print and the doctor Scan click here: print and Scan Doctor

    To temporarily turn off the firewall:

    1. Download and open the Print and Scan Doctor
    2. Click on 'Network' at the top of the window
    3. Click on 'firewall troubleshooting. "
    4. Select the firewall and disable

    Launch the software HP again to see if the printer is located.  If the printer is not found, then you want to communicate with your provider of firewall while allowing access to the printer to the computer.

    To turn on the firewall:

    1. Open the print and Scan Doctor
    2. Click on 'Network' at the top of the window
    3. Click on 'firewall troubleshooting. "
    4. Select the firewall and select

    If please, after back and let me know how it goes!

  • Warcraft III does not install on Windows 7 32 bit

    I try to install Warcraft III, and whenever I try to start the installer, nothing happens. I tried to run in each mode of compatibility as administrator, and nothing happens.

    I downloaded Virtual PC and XP Mode for it and tried to install it on that, and I get the error "The Application could not initialize properly (0xc0000005)" when I try to run the installer. I have to click OK twice until the message disappears.

    The program has never been on this computer, I'm not trying to reinstall, I want to put it here.

    Any ideas at all?

    Hello Ligress.

    I only came across problems using Warcraft 3 on 64-bit.  However, I use the downloadable version, not the version out of the original disc.  If you have a account, you can enter your Warcraft 3 CD key and you will be able to download it directly from Blizzard.  It may contain a newer version of the installer that works.

    It won't work on a virtual PC because it requires 3D hardware acceleration. Paul Smith - MVP for Windows desktop experience... I crawled off NNTP - for now. Detachment Aldershot, United Kingdom. On the internet at and Please post back to let us know what works and what does not. :-)

  • New installation of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit does not install the Windows updates

    I tried it twice.  I install Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit on a ThinkPad T61.  After installation and activation successful Windows, I tried Windows updates.  The 'check updates' never ends.  After the first installation of Windows, I tried all sorts of bugs found either here or other Windows Help Web sites, does not.  So I reinstalled Windows, but with the same result.

    After that the first installation was impossible to install updates, I received the Windows Update stand-alone Installer and downloaded the stand-alone files for updates.  Would install things like IE updates, but no security update would install, as well as most other updates.  Yet once, just standalone Setup would continue to search for already installed updates without ever ending.

    Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?

    Thanks for the comments.  It's good to hear that you have actually solved the problem.

  • Logitech clicsmart 310 does not install on Windows 7

    Original title: logitech clicsmart 310

    I tried to install the required software for that camera, but I couldn't get the camera does not respond.

    I recently installed win 7, but I couldn't install it


    1. You receive a code error message when you try to install the software of Logitech camera 310 clicsmart?
    2. Exactly how you try to install the drivers (CD/DVD or download)?

    From my research and the information provided on the site of the manufacturer (Logitech), the software available for the camera is not compatible with Windows 7.

    The driver software is available for Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME and Windows 98

    I recommend to install the camera in Windows XP compatibility mode driver.

    Follow the steps below to do the same.

    Step 1:

    Download the drivers from the manufacturer website link provided below.

    Note: Select Windows XP from the operating system drop-down and download the drivers.

    Step 2:

    Once download you the drivers, install them in compatibility mode.

    Some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If a program written for an earlier version of Windows does not work, you can try changing the compatibility of the program settings, either manually or by using the program compatibility problems.

    Refer to the provided article below for more information on how to run a program in Windows 7 compatibility mode.
