The web page does not load and does not display correctly in Firefox

The issue of incorrect display of web pages has been common to all browsers. If you encounter this problem, one of our suggestions below is sure to solve the problem for you.

  5. Check that your system clock is correctly set

1) Clear cookies and cache for Firefox browser

The purpose of cached files is to help web pages load faster when you try to open the same web page. These files are temporarily stored on the hard disk of your system. However, if you encounter a problem where the web page is not loading and is not displaying correctly, the first approach is to delete cookies and cache. The procedure to follow is as follows:

Click on Library button in the top right corner of the screen. It is represented by 3 vertical lines.

To select History> Clear recent history. Check the box for both biscuits and Hidden and hit Clear now.

Restart the system when done.

When the cache files are deleted, the system will rebuild them the next time the website is opened.

2) Reset the zoom of web pages


Although most Web pages adapt to screen zoom, some may not work as expected. In this case, it would be advisable to reset the size of your screen to 100% original. A quick shortcut to resize your screen to 100% is CTRL + 0.

It should be noted that the zoom of the Firefox browser is changed from its menu located in the upper right corner of the browser window (indicated by three vertical lines).

3) Reset the minimum font size

Some websites have problems displaying web pages if the minimum font size is not selected (none). Some extensions and plugins are known to cause this change. The procedure to correct this problem is as follows:

Type the address about: preferences in the address bar and press Enter.

Scroll up to Fonts and Colors and click Advanced…

Change the value of Minimum font size at No.

The web page does not load and does not display correctly in Firefox

Restart Firefox and try to load the web page again.

4) Reset the style of the web page

It is possible that you set the style of the web page to No Style. In such a situation, the question under discussion could arise. Indeed, no default style has been defined for web pages. You can change it to Basic Page Style.

You can solve it as follows:

Press ALT while keeping the Firefox browser open. This will display the traditional Firefox menu at the top of the window.

To select View> Page Style> Basic Page Style.

Reset the style of the web page

Restart the Firefox browser and check if the problem is resolved or not.

5) Check that JavaScript is not blocked

If JavaScript is blocked, some parts of the page will not load correctly in the Firefox browser. Now, you may not have the intention of blocking Javascript, but some extensions such as NoScript and some security software may block it.

To isolate the problem, please disable browser extensions to temporarily block scripts and security software. If this solves the problem, you can add Firefox as an exception to the security software whitelist.

6) Check if your system clock is set correctly

Web sites use certificates for verification. However, the browser and the websites determine the date and time from the system clock. If the date of the system clock is incorrect (much older or later), the website will not load correctly. So, check the date and time on the clock present in the lower right corner of the screen. If it is incorrect, correct the date and time.

7) Disable hardware acceleration

Some drivers do not display web content correctly if hardware acceleration is enabled. In such a situation, you may consider disabling hardware acceleration to access web pages.

8) reset Firefox

You can reset Firefox and see if that helps.

9) Report website

Try to open the web page on another system. Also try opening it with a different browser than the other system.  If the web page does not work in both cases, you can report the problem to the owner of the website. If the problem seems specific to Firefox on multiple systems, it can be reported to Webcompat.
