For the past two days My Yahoo page which was beautifully displayed in my favorite colors, columns, etc. has been changed to a black and white sheet of typed paper look. Appearance controls at the top of the page no longer work. Mail page looks like a dot matrix computer print-out, B&W also.

Most web pages are now displayed stripped of their colors and beautiful layouts. Again, these look like a typed page, rather than an artful web page.

I used add/remove and uninstalled. Deleted everything I could find on Mozilla or Firefox and downloaded a new version of Firefox 3.5.2...nothing changed.

It's possible your color setting just got changed.

If you go into Tools > Options, click on the 'Content' tab.
There is a Font and Colors section, with a button on the right that says Colors on it.

At the bottom it says:
'Allow pages to choose their own colors instead of my selections above.'
If that's not checked, check it, then your pages should go back to normal.
