I've been running Firefox on two separate Dell computers; a D600 Latitude and a Dimension 4500. Lately both computers have been running into problems loading certain websites correctly (menus are incomplete or missing, links and pictures are displaced, etc). Two of these websites are www.mnsu.edu and www.facebook.com. I use both of these quite frequently and because of this problem, the usability of both sites has significantly decreased; in fact, I can't even access my campus email without using Internet Explorer because the link is missing. Please help!!! Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Hi getsg083!

Go to one of those websites, and when it finishes loading, hit CTRL+F5 to do what is referred to as a HARD RESET. This will load every piece of the webpage and download it to your computer. This should solve your problem. :whistling:

That was brilliant, Fenor. Sites in foreign languages are having so many problems on Firefox that I practically stopped using it. I looked for solution but couldn't get any. I'll give it another chance.
