Pages rendering with only text and very sparse images

I'm on a Macbook and suddenly Firefox is no longer displaying pages fully. It seems to only grab text and styling and a few seemingly-arbitary but consistent images. I've uploaded an example image from trying to view forums.somethingawful.com. This started last night when I was trying to close some other apps with CMD+Q but they lagged and I ended up closing a bunch and I thought I had accidentally mashed some other CMD+key combo that put me in some funky render mode.

Chrome on this laptop works fine. Firefox on my PC logged in to the same Mozilla account still works.

I've tried: - Restarting my laptop - All the steps in this document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently - Creating a new Firefox local profile through about:profiles - Ensured View > Page Style > Basic Page Style is checked - Deleting the Firefox and Mozilla folders in Caches, deleting Firefox from Applications, and reinstalling

I'm now on a blank install with zero add-ons or extensions, but it's still not displaying correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Chosen solution

It turns out I was indeed in some funky render mode. It was caused by Firefox 91 applying alternate colors due to having High Contrast Mode enabled in my Macbook's system settings.

I went to:

Firefox Menu > Preferences > Languages and Appearance/Fonts and Colors > Colors...

and then set "Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above" to "Never" which resolved the issue.
