Fixing Firefox’s “Couldn’t Load XPCOM” Error Message on Start

Friday, December 13th, 2013

I haven’t run into this problem myself (yet) … but maybe you have.

When I tried to start the Firefox web browser today I received two error messages instead of the web browser. It would not start because of this, which left me puzzled for some time. The first error read “The program can’t start because pgort100.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem”. The only option was to hit on ok, which caused the second error prompt to appear on the screen.
