Caps.dll Error Solution Guarantee
The Mozilla Foundation, a non-profit organization, developed the caps.dll as a component of the Gecko Runtime Environment (GRE), which has now been replaced by XULRunner. The file caps.dll is used as part of the set of files required running applications embedded to the Gecko browsing engine and enables multiple Mozilla-based applications to share the same disk.
The benefits of having a separate shared run-time environment are the same as those with shared libraries. Benefits to developers and source-based systems – that is, systems on which programs are compiled from source as opposed to those downloaded in binary form – are decreased compilation time, less bandwidth needs and less storage space needed. Benefits for use on binary-based systems are similarly less bandwidth and storage use.
With a file size of about 56Kb, caps.dll leaves a small memory footprint on Windows operating system. The file’s method of distribution is through the installation of a larger application, which makes use of Gecko as its core-browsing engine.
Web browsers such as Mozilla, Netscape, Seamonkey, and K-Meleon are all based on the Gecko Runtime Environment, as such; caps.dll is also an integral part of their system.
The Mozilla ActiveX Control also uses caps.dll. This control is a very small distributable about 3-4Mb and contains the Gecko embedding engine and not the full Mozilla browser code.
The file caps.dll is also a part of Mozilla Thunderbird application, which are a secure and free Open Source, cross-platform email and news client developed by the Mozilla Foundation.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
