I upgraded from Firefox 2.0 to 3.5 and I'm having issues when trying to view any VBulletin based forums.

You can see in the attached image that none of the topic headers are displayed. Also, when inside an individual topic, none of the discussion text is displayed. So far, it seems the only issue I'm having is when trying to view a VBullein forum.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

TIA.

This is not a Firefox problem as such. It's usually caused by some add-in or it's possible (but unlikely) the issue is with the vBulletin in question as they are customisable by the site owner. But I have not seen any vBulletin boards go wrong in Firefox.

The problem existed in every VBulletin forum I visited.

I fixed it by creating a new Firefox profile. I have no idea why this worked, but it did.

I'd already tried disabling all plug-ins in my previous profile, to no avail.

98% of Firefox problems are caused by either a corrupt or damaged profile, or an add-in.
The other 2% are for everything else that can possibly go wrong with Firefox. :)
