A lot of the text comes out in very narrow columns. The problem happens quite often on eBay. Chrome does render it properly. Could you please look into this? Thanks, Jon

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Thanks for your 3 quick responses. I am a fairly recent adopter of Ghostery. I turned it off, did an F5 to reload the page, and it all loaded with correct layout. I then turned it on again and F5-ed and the bad layout reappeared. So it looks like Ghostery is the cause. I attach a screenshot of the bad layout for your information. I feel that the problem does not lie with Firefox and I'm closing the problem. It's good to know that Firefox is cared for so well and that an individual user can effectively contact developers. Strength to you all!

Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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

That was very good work. Well Done. Please flag your last post as Solved Problem as this can help others with similar problems. Go to that post and click the 'Solved' button to its right.

You should contact Ghostery support on this.

I don't know if Ghostery has this; Load the web page. After the page is loaded, click the AdBlock icon. Now select Disable on <website>. After, reload the page.
