Serious appearance problems with Firefox 4 and 5 on my Mac. I have to use 3.6.16 in order to have a stable experience. I have done safe mode, disabled all extensions, none of that helps. I have pics of what I'm talking about, I need some help please.

I have a mac, I was using firefox 3.6.16 which works just fine. I tried updating to version 4, but the appearance was weird and the preferences pane was all kinds of screwed up. I downloaded version 5 today and its pretty much the same as version 4. I have tried using safe mode and it works fine, I disabled all extensions and none of it works.

If you haven't tried this, give it a try. It worked for me, hopefully it will work for you. In your version 3 firefox, disable all extensions, I had two plugins (doubletwist and joost, disable those if you have them). Then install firefox 5 by overwriting your version 3 firefox. It should work fine after that. I tried everything before, I gave that a last ditch shot. Oh yeah, before you install firefox 5, clear your cache of everything just to be sure.

Hopefully that helps.
