Some of my bookmarked pages do not come up in their correct format. How do I get them back to their proper format?

With some of the bookmarks the web pages come up with the pictures & drop-downs eliminated. The information is in a list form down the left side of the screen. The format is all screwed up. Sometimes this even happens with the default browser. I have had to move all my bookmarks to Internet Explorer to get them to come up in the proper format. Is there a setting or something I can change to get them to come up right?

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
