Hi Everybody,

Today after restarting my computer, none of the websites I've been viewing on Firefox are displaying properly. They're missing banners, and somehow the colors, fonts, links, etc. are messed up. I can open pages but none look like they should.

I've got no idea why this is happening or what to do about it. I've attached a screenshot of Yahoo Sports below.

Happy to provide other information if necessary!

Thanks a lot for the help!

Just downloaded 91.0 and the next time I started up Firefox all of the websites that I frequent...just about all of their design (fonts, colors, etc.) are GONE! What the heck? It's like all of their formatting is no longer recognized. I don't have time to figure out how to get it all back. Clickable links use to turn color; can't put check marks in boxes when doing surveys (I was doing a survey when I chose to just download the update, and I was able to check boxes at that time; now I can't even check the box below to indicate I want to be emailed when someone answers this question! ... @verizon.net, by the way, if you want to email me to know you've answered this question.) I have never experienced this in the past. Is there an easy answer to this? Anyone else experience this? I am on iMac Mojave 10.14.6.

All of the colors are gone from webpages in Firefox--I've attached two images of Outlook: One, largely in black-and-white, was taken on Firefox, and is how Firefox has looked for two days now; the other, the one that is colored properly, was taken on Google Chrome, and is how Outlook usually appears. Unread messages aren't showing up tinted blue on Firefox, either, but the words are showing up bolded, like they usually would.

All websites look like this. On websites that have an image background (i.e., Netflix), the image appears, but the links (Log In, Forgot Password, etc.) are all in white boxes. Also, some things just aren't showing up--for instance, at the bottom of this page, there's a box that says "Email me when someone answers this thread," and I can't see if I've checked it or not--the checkmark isn't showing up. The issue there isn't that I'm not clicking it--earlier, I uploaded a video to YouTube, and where it offers the options "Yes, this video is made for children," and "No, this video is not made for children," the checkmark didn't show up, but YouTube allowed me to post the video anyway, indicating that I had, in fact, checked the box.

I've tried restarting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode, I've turned off all ad blockers and extensions, I've changed the theme, I've restarted Firefox, I've restarted my computer, and I've re-installed Firefox, and nothing is fixing the issue. The eye strain is so bad I can't use Firefox; I've been using Chrome.

Hi friends,

I don't know if there was an update or what but, suddenly, the Firefox browser is acting strangely. I notice it's showing the lines of each container on a page. (See screenshot.) When I open Twitter on Safari, those container lines are gone. But it's also affecting text color, turning it blue. (See screenshot.) When I open boingboing.net in Safari, the text is in black, as it should be.

It also seems to have slowed, though nothing has changed with my ISP or settings.

What happened? How to resolve?

I have the most recent version of Firefox - 91.0 - on a MacBook running BigSur, version 11.5.2.

Thanks in advance for your help.

all the websites look weird. I've included a screen shot of youtube for reference. Disabling add-ons didn't fix the problem. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it but that also did not fix the problem. I haven't tried deleting my user data because it's a bit of a hassle to get it all back. Let me know if there are some other things I can try.

Hello - Firefox Bookmarks are wonderfully intuitive and hardly need the well written instructions. However, in Manage Bookmarks, I search and find the Bookmark I want but can't see or find which folder it's in. Thus I can't sort it or move it to another folder. A column in search results showing Folder would be fabulous!

When I try to connect to the site for my internet provider, I am connected to the companies site for businesses. Ii have tried my cell (OK), my laptop (OK), and Safari (OK). so it looks like FireFox has become confused about the site meant to be accessed by that URL. Suggestions on how to reteach FireFox, please.

In my address bar I only enable bookmarks and my browser learns what websites I visit most and ensures they are prominently displayed. Egxample, a search of Y would bring up YouTube.com as my first result on the drop-down menu. Recently I noticed that when I now clear my browsing history it also removes the memory of my personalized address bar autocomplete url searches and reverts to a standardized dropdown menu not aligned with my personalized searches. Does anyone know how to cleat history without affecting the address bar autocomplete list

My desktop browser updated to 91.0 yesterday (08/16/21) and ever since then, pages on multiple website are looking weird. Gmail is missing dividers for new messages and any sort of rounded corner is just no there. YouTube button on videos have a semi-transparent white fill. Some sites, I'm unable to see buttons at all. Twiiter looks all kinds of weird. I was using the dark theme, which I've tried turning on and off (and have also tried going back to the default) but it hasn't made any difference. I've also updated today to 91.0.1, but see no change. Any thoughts to what could be causing this?

Thx K

Got the "new & improved" version 93, and it doesn't seem so improved. I can barely write this, as it keeps stopping and starting, and acts like we're underwater! It's using about 15GBs of RAM, and while I still have plenty on-hand, it's barely functioning! Come one, what's going on, will this browser ever just work?
