My firefox 1.06 does not display all sites correctly. A few examples of these sites are ebay and geekstogo. I see the text and can use the site, but the font and the color are wrong. Internet explorer displays all of these sites perfectly. How can I fix this?

Unfortunately, not all websites are designed to be used by Mozilla, so you will always need to habve a copy of IE laying around. Not to mention the fact that the only way you can update your XP (or windows operating system) is with IE.

I havent noticed any major problems with GTG and Firefox.

Not sure if supernoober's problem is solved, but this could :) others
The same thing happened to me yesterday. GTG, a few other forums, and a few regular sites weren't displaying right and was bugging me. So I cleared the firefox cache.

From Firefox:
Tools > Options
Privacy > Cache > Clear

Not sure what caused the problem, but my firefox is :tazz: now

Also, in case it is an IE problem, go to tools>extensions>get more extensions and download the veiw IE extension. It doesn't really sound like an IE site problem, but it is a handy extension to have. Later

Just so you know firefox will only display pages incorrectlky with are not valid html or there is something wrong with the code. is it possible to make any site look the same in firefox as IE no matter the problem with the HTML, however java and dhtml can have some problems but ANYTHING is possible.
