why does it look like this?? any help is much appreciated... its really weird and it kinda randomly started looking like this on its own.

I have seen this problem before, it happened on my friend's computer at school... It appears that the stylesheet is somehow missing.

Go to View > Page Style and make sure Basic Page Style is selected.

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling firefox.

Suddenly Internet Explorer doesn't seem so bad, does it?
