Firefox is not rendering/displaying websites correctly.

Posted

Started today, never had problems with any site I visited until now. Every webpage I vist will not load/render/display correctly. I have not done anything to firefox in ages and have had no problem like this before.

Chosen solution

If you use extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extension) like Adblock Plus or NoScript or Flash Block that can block content then make sure that such extensions aren't blocking content.


  • "Clear the Cache": Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
  • "Remove the Cookies" from sites that cause problems: Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).

  • Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

Question owner

cor-el I thank you. It seems like adblock plus was the problem. Although my problem was corrected, is there anything else that would cause issues like this?
