I had the same problem and finally noticed it had to do with AdBlock Plus. When Adblock is switched off, the messages were viewed correctly.

How to solve it and stay using AdBlock Plus

Go to "Tools", choose "Add-ons" > "AdBlock Plus Options" > "Filters" > "Update All Subscriptions"

Reload Gmail and your problem will be solved.
