Hello my firefox has been working great and i prefer it over IE but today it seems to have suddenly decided not to display web pages correctly, i tryed reinstalling but that doesn't seem to fix the problem so i assume it was something i did. I think its just not rendering the visuals, as all it shows is a list of links ,is this an option that can be turned and off? IE works fine for me.

If it's all become plain text in default font, size, and colors then you've probably done something to bork the CSS handling. Do you have Adblock Plus installed? Stylish? Did you try starting Firefox in Safe Mode?

You probably accidentally created a rule in Adblock like *.css or some such. You could remove any such rule or clear all your rules out and just add in the EasyList rules, which takes care of the vast majority of ads served on the internet.

Under Tools - Privacy - History - Use Custom Settings - this solved a Fox News display problem for me.

You reply is a bit late. The thread was dead for nearly a year and about an earlier version of Firefox. Locking now.
