    Does this site look like ass to anyone else using Firefox?
    Section breaks are tiled and grahics are broken all over the page.

    The page looks fine in IE, but I hate to use it for anything other than windows updates.

    If anybody has suggestions, I'm all ears.
    Thanks!

    We have a large number of members (including myself) who use Firefox on these forums. Everything looks pretty much exactly like it does in IE.

    It sounds like an isolated problem. What extensions have you installed? Have you tried clearing your cache and refreshing the page with Ctrl+F5?

    Thanks for your reply. Since it looks great for you, it must be something in my config. Here's a snapshot attached:

    Here's my setup:
    WinXP sp2
    1280 x 1024 resolution
    Radeon 9800 Pro

    BadMojo, as I asked in the previous post: What extensions have you installed? Have you tried clearing your cache and refreshing the page with Ctrl+F5?

    You are getting images, where I definatly didn't code them.
    I designed this site and along the way I constantly checked it with both IE and Firefox.
    I am sure I would have had alot more complaints if there was an issue.

    Works here. Could it be an issue with 1.01?

    Again, I am sure many users upgraded to it straight away.
    But would mean that their code was either broken before or after and I doubt it was the first :) I blame the user... :D

    Do me a favor, i saw this on the school computers as well. Go into your profile, save your bookmarks file, and then delete it, re-create the profile, and the problem should disappear (Note: you will lose your saved passwords stuff).

    You didn't scroll the page while it was loading/rendering did you? I've gotten interesting results doing that myself but a refresh fixes it. :)

    Deleting my profile as X-Istence suggested fixed the problem.

    1) Linked to site via bookmark - farked
    2) Typed in URL for site - farked
    3) Dumped cache - farked
    4) Exported bookmarks
    5) Deleted bookmarks and profile
    6) New profile, import bookmarks from XML - fixed


    Thanks for the help guys.. Now if somebody could explain WHY this would fix display issues, I'd be interested to see how the two are related. I can only assume that my profile had the ScrewedUp flag set to on or it had become corrupted.

    Just wondering, was this a clean installation of the new Firefox, or did you just install it over an older Firefox version? I heard somewhere that it's best to start with an empty firefox folder before installating the new version over an older one.

    It is something to do with one of the files in the folder. It was causing HORRIBLE performance for me, and apges that were not loading properly, removed the profile, created a new one, and all is sailing smoothly again. Dun know why, all i know is that it works :p

    Looks fine to me also. I do notice on some sites that the size is off as compaired to IE. Must be the cdd or something ..
