Hi there..pllleeeeaaseee help me!

i have installed a joomla 2.5 template and it is not displaying properly in firefox, however it displays perfectly in IE and Chrome. I have the latest versions for all.

Please help, i really cannot figure out what the issue could be as i never have a problem with templates displaying firefox, IE is usually an issue.

basically in firefox nothing in its its place the structure is jumbled and nothing is how it should be.

I am working on my localhost.

Any help would be really appreciate, this is hurting my brain!!

oh and also i have tried on different versions of firefox and have the same issue.

Thank you :)

I split your post from its original location because that thread had been dormant for 6 years!

First thing I'd do is toss both the HTML and CSS through the validators at and see if anything pops out.

Also, files in the cache can get out of sync during development, so try these early and often:

1. Bypass Firefox's Cache

Use Ctrl+Shift+r to reload the page fresh from the server. Any difference? If not...

2. Clear Firefox's Cache Completely

orange Firefox button ''or'' Tools menu > Options > Advanced

On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now"
