  3. Windows 10 - Chrome and firefox are not working

    This helped me with Chrome but not with Firefox.

    I opened Control Panel>Troubleshooting>Programs>Advanced, Run as Administrator and then went through the steps. My problem was the Chrome wouldn't start at all, so I went through the steps and it asks what program you're having problems with, I chose Google
    Chrome, it'll go through a short diagnostic and then give you the option of Troubleshoot Program & then it gives a list of problems. I chose the first one: This program worked in earlier versions.... then click next, I clicked Windows 7, then next and it did
    it's little fix. I tested and Chrome opened up just fine.

    No such luck for Firefox, though.

  4. How to block or disable Downloads in Chrome and Firefox on Windows 10

    Still having problems with Firefox and Google Chrome in Windows 10

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest on windows 10.

    I understand that you are unable to access firefox and google chrome. I will certainly help you with the issue.

    To begin with troubleshooting I would like you to answer the following questions:

    could you please tell me whether you are able to reinstall Google chrome?

    could you please tell me whether are you facing issue only with Mozilla Firefox?

    I suggest you to follow the step below:

    Step:This is most likely your anti-virus program blocking web browsers from accessing the internet.

    Temporarily disable Anti-virus software and then try access Google Chrome

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software,
    you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Once you are done with disabling anti-virus software, Please try to install firefox again and check if it helps.



    Hope this information is helpful. If the issue still persists, please post back for further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
