Firefox is not displaying any page correctly. It seems to be losing some, not all, formatting and images.

Posted

Installed FF 20 to do some cross browser compatibility testing for a website I am building when I came across this problem. It seems as if it is unable to connect to the external style sheets of the webpages (best guess, I don't really know enough to be sure, but with what I do know this is my best guess) It seems that some formatting is coming through but not all. I am not sure what is causing this, but it seems to effect all pages visited in this browser, Google, Facebook, etc. They all display fine in chrome. I have tried every fix offered up on this site, and have yet to find someone with the same problem. I'm dead in the water here, any help is apreciated.

if it's just for energy conserving purposes you could also use the windows 7 basic theme or the windows classic theme (which you can also customize in terms of colors etc.) - both will come without the whole transparency stuff & help conserve energy.

the high contrast theme is there especially to help visually impaired people though - i don't know of any way to disable the effects on website layout in firefox for it...

hello, i think the site is shown this way because you have switched on the high-contrast theme in the windows control panel/appearance settings.

Question owner

Yes, I have, I keep the Aero interface in Win7 off to save computing power. No need for all those bells and whistles. Does it need to be active for Firefox to display pages properly?

Question owner

Thank you much philipp, that seems to have fixed the problem. Any workaround to be able to use the high contrast theme in win7? I actually prefer the look of the high contrast themes.
