Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

None of the above resolves the issue. Even reinstalling Firefox doesn't work.

Your suggestions didn't fix the issue. Reinstalling Firefox from scratch didn't fix the issue.

The two sites in question used to work just fine and they work in Edge, MS Explorer, Chrome and Safari so it IS a Firefox issue.
