Site not displayed properly to 'Limited Access' users.

We have SharePoint 2010 site with a Contact list; Many users don't have permission to the entire site; but they have READ or Contributor permission to that Contact list. So this shows 'Limited Access' in permissions.

Problem is - The site does not displayed properly to users. It looks with complete white background with No SharePoint theme loading (see attached screenshot)

Please note: Its NOT browser issue; this has been tested on administrators machine (with those limited access users log in);

I think its the issue with access to SharePoint's internal theme files where user don't have access; What could be the reason?

I agree. The users clearly don't have permissions to see some of the assets that make up the look and feel of the site.

It'd be interesting to see the unrestricted view of the page to see what kind of assets are involved here.

Try changing the master page and check if the issue persists.

The users probably don't have proper permissions to the masterpage and other theme related pages.

As all above users said - users actually doesn't have rights to Masterpages. So there was a Restricted Read access group which had access to Only see master pages and themes, logos etc. I needed to add each user to this Restricted Read Group
