    Default This Forum Display Problem In Firefox

    Now, when I open this Forum in Firefox, the page looks like this. When I open the same link in Chrome, it looks 'normal'.
    Would anyone know please what settings could be changed to correct in Firefox?
    I have loaded the latest version, but presumably it would default to users settings and I can't find the culprit.
    Cheers,
    Don

    I'm using Waterfox and do not have that issue. I have seen the forum load like that once or twice, but a simple refresh and it reloads fine.

    In Firefox, if I use the menu item View>Page Style>No Style, I get that funky look you got. To get the "normal" look, I set it to View>Page Style>Basic Page Style.

    If you do not see the menu in Firefox, right-mouse click on the tab bar and check the Menu Bar option.

    Good luck!

    I use Firefox myself, so it is some setting on your end. Or it could be that Firefox has cached a wrong stylesheet.

    Try hitting Ctrl+F5 at the same time.

    Or try clearing your cache by going to Options -> Privacy -> Clear Your Recent History -> Select "Cache"

    Thanks guys for your suggestions, really appreciated.
    I have now tried all of them but no change.
    The thing is, I assume that settings set in Firefox will be universal and will apply to any web page accessed, not just 4/3 Photo.
    But this is the only site affected.
    Not to worry. I will use Chrome for here. Darn sight leaner and quicker anyway
    Cheers,

    Every time I've seen this behaviour, either NoScript or AdBlock is blocking something it shouldn't.

    It's one of those things that I've had happen enough to me that I've learned to start by checking there

    Remember that you only need to add a site exception to the offending filter... no need to disable the whole of AdBlock.

    I use adblock myself, and have never noticed any issues, so it must be a custom rule or something.

    Also, there is nothing to block on this site, so you are pretty safe turning it off.
