Firefox ignoring styles

Posted

I recently changed to a new computer and I have been having problems with Firefox that I haven't experienced before. Whenever I use Firefox I find myself having to force refresh (Ctrl+F5) a site almost every time. I do this when I see the site that I am at looking weird (like the picture below) like it is ignoring the styles. Can anyone help me fix this?

I have tired running Firefox in safe mode, Chrome renders just find all of the time, and I have cleared the cache and everything multiple times

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?

A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

Try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps.
