Firefox 17 does not work properly

Posted

After Firefox 17 installed itself I began having problems with some web site graphics not loading properly such as Wikipedia and Facebook. It is hard to describe without showing a picture but if it happened to you as well you will know what I mean.

Chosen solution

Update back up to Firefox 17 (using older versions is very insecure) and then read Websites look wrong or appear differently than they should

More Information

I am using Win 7 and everything else works fine as do most web sites. I went to those sites not working with IE and they displayed fine. I uninstalled FF 17 and installed an older version and the problem went away. So if anyone else has had this problem what is the fix for FF 17?

Yes it is dangerous, as Firefox 12 has dozens of known security holes that are being publicly exploited. Did you even try updating and trying the steps in the article?
