Is anyoen else having issues using the boards while in FireFox? At work (IE), everything works fine, butu when I log in at home (FF), most pages (not all, and not consistantly) I get a horribly-formatted version of the boards, then I scroll about half-way down and the normal setup starts from the beginning. Pretty weird.

If this is a novel thing, I'll add a screenshot tonight when I get home.

I use FF exclusively, and haven't had any issues... if that helps at all :)

Looks like Fx has started rendering the page before it's finished loading the whole of the stylesheet. Why it should do that, I have no idea. It doesn't do it for me.

i know. What's really weird is if you scroll down, about halfway down the page it starts over and everythingis normal. And occasioanlly, and seemingly at random, a page will load properly. Very weird.

I suppose the next question to ask would be, what extensions, plug-ins, and so on are you using with Firefox? It may be that there is some odd combination of add-ons that's causing this problem.

--tll (FTR, I use Firefox exclusively, and I've never seen this problem.)

Probably a good call, tll.

I sometimes get similar effects on pages if the style sheets are being blocked by a proxy (for me, it happens sometimes when I'm using TOR; Privoxy sometimes mangles the first request after it's activated).

STG, do you have any proxies or script-blockers running?
