Webpage rendering problem, cannot see video thumbnails for youtube
I am facing a issue recently in firefox that I cannot see the page contents correctly. Couple of examples : - when I open youtube.com, dont see the video thumbnail images. I see blank there. I can see the video description though. But when I click on a video link, it plays okay. - Some webpages are not rendering correctly even when there is no video.
I tried following, without success - - uninstalled and re-installed firefox - opened firefox in safe mode.
I dont have any extension. I have shockwave plugin installed. And the OS is Windows 10
