I was viewing different topics on the forum earlier. As I was reading something about a user's background color disappearing, ironically.. seconds later, mine also disappeared. I do not really know what happened. I want to post a ScreenShot but I do not see any attachment bottons near the post box. Only Post Options I see are the emoticons/signature/email notification.

I am using mozilla and OS is windows Xp Pro.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks

No because I dont think I have that enabled after i reformatted my computer. I also tried reinstalling but that did not help.

I think ATF cleaner might have something to do with it. My friend told me about it and I used it for the first time. Maybe it might have cleaned up too much of my system/temp files/cookies ??

I tried reinstalling firefox itself but nothing happened. Can it possibly be the ATF Cleaner? I was using it just before the color thing happened.

No I have not tweaked anything in the settings/display option. I just downloaded firefox and restalled it. Afterwards, I opened firefox back up and the back for the forum page is still all white. If i remember correctly, isnt it suppose to have a dark blackish color to it ?

Plus, all the dividers for the sections are missing. I only see text kinda.

Another example is if u would go to yahoo "answers" you would see those cartoony face icons and stuff. I use to see them but now I dont. I only see text basicially.

Yes it definitely is a browser (firefox) problem. I am currently using I.E. to post this so I can include a screen shot. Here is how it looks like on firefox compare to what it is really suppose to look like before anything changed. Thanks

PROBLEM IS SOLVED **Thanks to @ryan and @rstones12** from the mIRC.

Here is how I solved the problem.

-Appearently, I ran ATF-Cleaner to clean my browser (firefox) while it is still running.
-Thus my background colors has vanished
-I was told to close all the firefox browsers
-Then RUN ATF again after selecting firefox
-After that, I reopened firefox and everything is back to normal.


Thanks to everyone who contributed to this post. I appreciate everything. G2G ftw!! :)
