FireFox not Displaying page correctly (IE too)

  1. FireFox not Displaying page correctly (IE too) *fixed*

    Hello,

    When I try to go to this page:
    http://wowvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Talents.View&category_select_id=4

    It doesn't display correctly, this is how it looks when I open it:
    clicky

    The page showed correctly once because it has a black background not white.
    I'm using Firefox 1.0.4 and went back to 1.0 but that didn't work, I also tried
    using IE but that did not work either.
    I have deleted my cookies but that doesn't work.

    Since the problem is with Firefox and IE, I guess the problem is with me because
    Friends using Firefox have no problem displaying the site correctly.

    Thanks anyway, bye :wave:

    could it be java?

    This may be due to your firewall, suppressing pictures by size (like Agnitum Outpost).
    Perhaps there is a glitch in the Dutch version of FF?
    It looks like the print-preview of the site, without the background colour.

    Try to uninstall MSVM (=MS-Java) and install Sun's Java instead.

    Off-topic:
    I was reading a Dutch forum earlier on, that language is completely UNsuited for computing!
    I used to live in Holland until 1968, but I can't figure head or tail on the computer gibberish now.

    Yes, I know that dutch isn't a reall good language for cumputing, example:

    Favourites is now called Bladwijzers, wtf? I didn't even know what baldwijzers
    were until I opened it..... :giddy:

    anyway to go back ontopic, I already had sun java but I never uninstalled that
    MSVM since I don't know where to find it (its all so hidden).

    But about that dutch thing, my friend is also using a dutch version of FF and he
    doen't have any problem.

    no luck, but I've tried with another computer in the network with FF 1.0.4 and it
    works fine.
    EDIT: This computer also had sun java on it and probebly also MSJVM.

    It must be something on my own computer, active-X maybe?

    I don't know allot about web pages so if you know some other things that might
    be it, please tell me :stickout: .

    Thanks for the help so far realblackstuff :wave:

    seriously MCAFEE SUCKS!!! :knock:

    So I got sick of the firewall, it wasn't really working anyway, I uninstalled it and
    got microsoft antispyware thing.

    I thought, hey lets try the IGN site again, suprisingly it showed up NORMEL :grinthumb

    I can finally create and see talent builds, me so happy.

    Problem: mcafee firewall
    Fix: don't get the firewall....

    well thanks again :wave:

    In my opinion McAfee is up there with Norton: overpriced, non-working, resource-hogging bloatware.
    So my first suspicion was correct!
    Glad you got it sorted.
