After automatic update to firefox 12 some pages do not display correctly. As an example my Scottrade login page has no login button. My CNN money page has text along the left side of the page but very little graphics. Suggests some graphics setting has been changed? Need experts help. Thanks, Fred
eload web page(s) and bypass the cache.
Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
Do you have a screenshot?
Can you try the steps at Websites look wrong or appear differently than they should?
Reloaded web pages with shift held while hitting reload and this solved the problem. Thanks for your help Cww.
It appears that I will have to keep holding shift and refresh for some web pages. Can you tell me how to make a permanent fix? The display is fine once you hold shift down and refresh. Would like to avoid having to do this each day. Thanks Fred
it seems that upgrading to firefox 12 has many problem. Most of the people have problem after upgrading firefox 12. Most of the time the upgrade from firefox 11 to 12 not successful. so the problem has occurred. I recommend u to download Firefox 12 from mozilla.org and install it. It is the easiest way to solve ur problem. There are many other ways to solve the problem. but the easiest way is this
@Swarnava u have to see what operating system he using. U have to reply solve according to his operating system.he is using windows. so u have to give solve according to windows not others. Ur reply of this question seems very much complicated because u give the solve for all operating system. So most of the people can't understand ur reply. I hope u wouldn't mind of my reply. Thanks
I think either the site is using the Firefox cache incorrectly or you have something else that's corrupting your cache. We've seen this problem before where some object in the cache (with CNN Money, it seems to be the style sheet) gets caught by an antivirus program or messed up by an add-on and now that cache item won't stay.
I'd try disabling add-ons from Tools > Add-ons and also clearing the cache completely (Tools > Clear Private Data, select only cache and click Clear now)
This doesn't sound like the kind of problem that re-installing from mozilla.org will fix, honestly, since the site loads ok when you bypass the cache (holding shift on reloads).
I had a similar problem (under Win 7 Pro) that seems partly due to FF not handling pages that it remembers that I usually view zoomed-in 1 or 2 steps (view/zoom/zoom in, or CTRL_+).
If I reset the zoom (view/zoom/reset, or CTRL_0 [zero]), then usually most of the missing text reappears, but not always.
For example, please see the attached screenshot from a Mozilla site page, which shows 2 empty bullet items with their content missing. (I'd highlighted the navigation line before taking the screenshot, so that part is OK.)
There are probably other places where this info should be posted, but I've wasted too much time already trying to Google needles in the haystack. Hope this helps save at least a few people a few hours.
I think the FF release cycle really needs to be stretched out a couple of extra weeks to do much better testing!! I love FF and its huge recent improvements for supporting many windows with many dozens of open tabs without more-or-less dying, but I hate the time wasted dealing with repeated random breakage of previously working things.
Looks like you have a white text color (I see it in the title bar as well).
You can verify that by using the mouse to select the text or select all via Ctrl+A.
You can check the default colors:
Did you ever install a persona (Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes)?
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
Did you make changes in the Windows appearing settings or have a Windows theme that sets the color to white?
