Re: web pages are not displaying properly


Thanks for your reply. When I started using my PC this morning, it had gone through the normally scheduled routines: Malware anti-bytes, AVG antivirus, PC Clean and PC Maestro. Everything cleaned up, registry issues (2) resolved, etc. After I restarted the PC, I checked the Facebook and eBay sites. Now everything is working normally.

I guess one of the apps repaired or fixed a faulty file? Anyway, thanks for the assistance. Even though I didn't need to do it, I'm saving the screen-print info for future reference.

Have a great New Year!

Re: web pages are not displaying properly

If images are missing then check that you aren't blocking images from some domains.

  • Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the hidden "Menu Bar" temporarily.
  • Check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
  • Check "Tools > Page Info > Media" for blocked images
  • Select the first image link and use the cursor Down key to scroll through the list.
  • If an image in the list is grayed and "Block Images from..." has a check-mark then remove this check-mark to unblock images from this domain.

Make sure that you do not block (third-party) images, the permissions.default.image pref on the about:config page should be 1.

Make sure that you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.

Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own colors.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Colors : [X] "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above"

Note that these settings affect background images.

There are extensions like Adblock Plus (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and security software (firewall, anti-virus) that can block images and other content.

Good to hear. Remember to run mal-ware scans now and then.
