Still not loading properly with the add-ons enabled. Must be something else.

I disable all ad ones as you told me. I restarted firefox, and no changes have occurred,so I have enabled the add ons. Interesting how everything loads fine in Explorer.

Interesting. Here I am using Explorer and all is the way it should be. Not sure why all of the sudden the past 2 weeks Firefox doesn't show Avatars and doesn't let me access font colors or smleys on the Garden Forum. :shock: I have done nothing different when using Firefox.

You might also have a corrupt profile in Firefox.

Try starting Firefox in Safe Mode (all programs>Firefox>Safe Mode). Create a new profile and see if that helps.

Before doing anything though, back up your bookmarks! Firefox>Bookmarks>organize bookmarks. Then from that page, select Import and Backup. Do this just in case you have to start all over again with a new profile, so that you can then import your existing bookmarks to the "starting over" version of Firefox.

Here's more on Profiles and how to troubleshoot/fix:

Well I did what you said re bookmarks and I have lost them. I am going to take a break from this while I holiday in PEI for a few days. So frustrating. I may just take this tower in and have it wiped clean when I get back. Such a pain. Thanks for your consideration Lyn, Caroline, and William.

Happy Gardening!

Computers can be VERY frustrating. There are just so many combinations and permutations of things that can go wrong and not co-operate with each other. I hope you get it sorted out when you get back Linda. Enjoy PEI!

Caroline you sure are a book of knowledge when it comes to troubleshooting! I followed the steps in the link to create a new profile....and Voila.....everything is back to normal. I see all Avatars, smileys, etc! Thanks so much! Now I can go away on Monday knowing that dh will be able to continue his ELearning.
