Using Firefox 3.6.3 and IE 8, Win 7.
Web page no longer look like they used to. No color. No artwork. All web pages look like a cheaply typed piece of paper. Sometimes words a re scrambled.

I do not have the program MS Paint with my Win 7. I'm not knowledgable about adding screenshots. But, on my desktop is a screenshot of my yahoo page and it is .jpg. Can I cut and paste? No, I guess not (tried twice.)

I read the instructions on uploading the screenshot to wikihow, but don't understand how that will allow you to see the screenshot.
Wow! I'm totally confused.
As additional information...my problem exists on both Firefox and IE there fore the problem is in the computer not the browser. Right? So what changed all these websites into just a printed page, like this page I'm typing on now?

It is just named Paint in Windows 7. It's in that same location the tutorial mentioned: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint

Heck, you can just type Paint at the Start Menu and it will show up. But anyway...

Go to Imageshack and upload your picture. After it is uploaded, look for the Direct Link in the list. Copy and paste that link into your next reply. :thumbsup:

Okay, here is your Direct Link: http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/9520/screenshotdl.jpg


Wow, that does look weird. :thumbsup: I see you have a Firefox theme installed...have you tried removing it? Did you say it occurs in IE, as well? What about other programs like Word, Adobe Reader, etc...or is it limited only to browsers?

IE exhibits exactly the same as Firefox.
Your asking about word, adobe etc., I'm not sure what you mean. How can I see a website in word?

I see...

Haha...you can't see websites in those programs. I wanted to know if all programs had this weird color/pattern or if it was limited to browsers only (webpages).

I guess you might say I'm a novice at this.
I'm only experiencing the problem on IE and Firefox. I just downloaded Safari for windows. Websites load just fine. So now I don't have a clue, is it my pc or the browsers. I've made no setup changes to IE as I very rarely use it, but it exhibits the same behavior as firefox.

Well, if Safari loads fine, use it until we get IE and FF sorted out.

I'm not entirely sure if it's your computer or the browsers...if it had happened to Safari, as well, I would have said it was your computer. But since it's limited to IE and FF, I don't know. I've never seen browsers behave in this way. It happening to BOTH IE and FF is really weird. The programs are very different and share little, if anything, in common. It's baffling to see both plagued by this same problem...

Give me a little while to research this and I'll get back to you. :thumbsup:

In the mean time, can you post a screenshot of an IE window that looks like this, as well?

That is beyond weird... :thumbsup:

Well, the only thing I can reckon that is causing this is that "Roboform" toolbar. It is installed in both IE and FF (but not Safari, I'm guessing). Try uninstalling that toolbar (along with the others that have accumulated in IE), and see if that was the cause.

Try running Firefox in Safe Mode and see if you still get the crappy screen.

I'm trying to figure out what it is that could be affecting both IE and FF....currently it's baffling me... :thumbsup: :trumpet:

But I haven't given up! :flowers:

Firefox will not start in "safe mode". Followed all instructions. In my Mozilla Firefox folder there is no safe mode file.
