The only thing on every site that I see is text, no back round colors or graphics.

Is this your first installation of Firefox?

Does this only affect the contents of the Firefox window, or does it affect the rest of Windows as well?

Could you check the properties of the shortcut you use to start Firefox (right-click > Properties). Make sure it does not have anything checked on the Compatibility tab.


You also could you try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in case Firefox is having a severe problem with your graphics drivers.

You usually need to restart Firefox in order for this to take effect, so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.).

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Options > Advanced

On the "General" mini-tab, uncheck the box for "Use hardware acceleration when available"

Then restart Firefox. Any change?

By the way, do you use a "High Contrast" theme for Windows? I think Firefox may behave strangely with High Contrast themes, but I haven't tried any myself.


There also is a troubleshooting article you can review here: Fix problems that cause images to not show.

Make sure that you allow pages to choose their colors and that you haven't enabled High Contrast in the Accessibility settings.

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

Actually I have no themes. Previously I used Google Chrome so I switched to firefox, and this wasn't happening with chrome even when I had them at the same time.

I did this as well.

Did you check the accessibility settings in Windows?

  • Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization -> Window Color & Appearance -> Appearance - uncheck "High Contrast", restart the application
