This is the same on all three of my machines using Firefox.

Chosen solution

The problem is that there are too many elements nested in that table cell. Firefox stops rendering at some point and discards the content (or in some cases displays it unstyled). This can be caused by using some HTML editors and/or copy/pasting over and over.

You need to edit the HTML so you get a fresh start with maybe one pair of font tags:

Hi eronsparts, is the missing section something that is embedded from another site? Usually you can tell by right-clicking that area and checking the context menu for This Frame which will have some additional options for the embedded page.

Firefox may refuse to load framed content if the framed content address starts with HTTP and it's in an HTTPS page. In that case, look for a mixed content indication in the address bar. More info: Mixed content blocking in Firefox.

Firefox may also not load framed content from certain sites when Tracking Protection is enabled, such as in a private window. There would also be an indication toward the left end of the address bar in that case. More info: What happened to Tracking Protection?.

If neither of those is the issue, can you give a link to a page that has this problem, assuming members of the general public can see it. If the problem is only when you are creating or editing a listing, you might need to ask on eBay's support site, assuming they have one.

Thanks for the response. This is something that just started happening this last week. I believe it is something to do with Firefox. I contacted eBay and they have no records of a problem. If you goggle "What is wrong with Firefox while using eBay listing template there are a couple of posts that other users are having. If you search my listing with ebay item number 201760141921 while using any other browser than Firefox the listing works. Look in the box near the bottom of the listing that starts with CATEGORIES and you will see my small description of the item that I'm selling on ebay.

IE, Chrome and OPERA you can see this part of the listing. In Foxfire you are not able to see anything in this area of the listing beyond the title " - Categories. Thanks for looking at this for me. I make a copy of each of my listing on ebay for a pull sheet and Firefox is the only browser that lets me size the listing down to just one page using the 50% settings. I don't know what I'm going to do if I can't find a fix for this.
