Windows 7: Firefox 5 Doesn't Display Web Pages Properly w/ Windows 7

Firefox 5 Doesn't Display Web Pages Properly w/ Windows 7

Okay, I only have enough brain left to type this thread. I just upgraded (new PC) with Windows 7 Pro 32 bit. Ever since doing so, none of the websites seem to download properly or look like they did in Vista regardless of the theme, website, or other. I can make the website or font bigger with Cntrl>Alt>Scroll but it never seems to last nor does it cover the page.

This does not occur in Opera, but I am not a 100% true fan of Opera and I absolutely detest IE. Well, what now? Give me back my Vista. Never had a problem with Vista.

* I have attached a screen shot for review. Thanks for any advice or helping to restore my sanity!

Don't have NoScript or similar extension installed do you? Reason for asking is that page loads fine here,

Barn,

When upgraded, precisely what procedure did you follow?

Ahhhhhhh

Well, I didn't upgrade. The PC was new. Just downloaded Firefox 5.0 and you saw the results. I'm not sure what you are referring to with 'NoScript.'

Ahhhh

Okay, I found out what NoScript is. I downloaded it as an Addon and it did nothing. I am going to remove it. I forgot to mention that IE doesn't load worth a tickers damn either. Same results, which tells me it has to be a setting someplace I've missed.

White Pages

Gentlemen: I might also mention that all of the background of each web page is white no other color. I'm stumped.

Barn,

Run the system file checker.

WIN | CMD.EXE | do NOT hit Enter | right-click on cmd.exe in the resulting display and choose Run as administrator |

You are now at what is called an "elevated command prompt".

Type
SFC /SCANNOW
hit ENTER

If when the System File Checker finishes, you do NOT see a message indicating that no integrity violations were found, THEN reboot your computer and once again run System File Checker. Do you get the msg about no integrity violations now?

Oh yes,
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

One possibility I can think of with you saying Opera is OK and it happens in Firefox (is IE9 affected as well?), Firefox uses both Direct2D and DirectWrite hardware acceleration (uses the video card to render pages) and Opera doesn't yet. Did you remember to install the latest driver for your video card?

Gentlemen: Ran the scan and did get the message. I also installed the new driver for the video card. No go. Still the same.

Storm: Nice having a Canadian onboard. My maternal grandparents were from Sarnia, Ontario. Consider Canada my second home. Spent many a good time as a kid and adult in Canada.

Barn,
Please complete your system specs. There are times when that information is crucial and vital.

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.
