I just loaded firefox(9.01) on home pc with default setting and the webpage graphics is screwy. I tried the website with all default settings at the time of initial install and webpage didnt display right - I since added some extensions and themes with no change. the only time it works is when I am in safemode - I have the same extensions and add-ons installed on firefox at work with the only difference is that I am running win7(64bit) at home and win xp at work.

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Cmd + Shift + R" (MAC)

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
