Whenever I try to visit experts exchange on one of my new browers, IE9, Firefox, or Chrome, the webpage does NOT load properly. I've even added experts-exchange to my "capatability list" within IE9 and to no avail.

Any ideas? It's definitely affecting my productivity severely since the page is very incorrectly rendered.

Can you post the screenshot

Check internet options-fonts-it should be times roman and courier new. Click ok and then restart internet explorer.

I screenshotted three random pages and pasted them all side-by-side in the attached image.

Hopefully it's not too confusing, I did cut out perhaps too many details on the first two shots.

Let me know if that's clear, but to distill the images into words, essentially buttons are loading in the wrong locations, text boxes are incorrectly sized, etc. And, I'm loading this in what should be "compatability view."

Does this happen in no addon mode in internet explorer. Try no addon mode.

Also can you boot the computer in safe mode with networking and check the websites.

Safe mode with networking the page loaded correctly, add-ons disabled the page did not run correctly.

However, in safe mode with networking it looked like I was running IE8 NOT IE9, and I've never had a problem loading EE in IE8.

Thoughts?

Okay try clean boot in normal mode


Clean Boot Process
Click Start-msconfig-click on services tab -put a check on hide all microsoft services and then click disable add. Click on startup tab and disable all.

Restart the computer.


Also boot the computer VGA mode and check the webpage.

So this is really odd, I was just about to try your solution this afternoon ded9, when upon reloading the page it suddenly loaded correctly.

Perhaps the web dev team at EE noted something internal and fixed the issue? It looks like all of experts exchange is running flawlessly now. So... thanks for the effort, I'll accept your answer(s) and be glad the issue is resolved.

The solution solved itself but the ded9's efforts are still highly appreciated.

sorry if I shouldn't be posting here after two months, but I'm having a Firefox issue with experts exchange itself.
EE is SUDDENLY rendering improperly in firefox. The entire website is half the size, and all other sites render as normal.
Did I accidentally set something or did some new browser code get rolled out ?
