Websites displaying incorrectly


When I access this newspaper website on Firefox, Qupzilla or Midori (the three browsers on my Linux), the display looks dreadful:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/

On my screen, the photos are either missing or misplaced and text runs over other text, making it unreadable. The articles themselves display fine.

It's like that with most of the Telegraph (and certain other websites') display.

However, on my older version of Linux (Mint 12 LXDE) which has Firefox 20 installed, the website displays fine.

I am currently using Firefox 26, Qupzilla 1.8.6 and Midori 0.4.3. I am reluctant to update Firefox to a later version, in case that display (and those of other, currently working, websites) is even worse.

Can anyone suggest why this website displays with equal crappiness on my three browsers, but is okay on an old version of FF?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Steve

Works fine here - Firefox 52.0 64-bit. Would suggest updating (unless you don't have pulseaudio, in which case you'll need to find an alsa-compiled version). From a security perspective, running a version as old as Firefox 26 is not a great idea. Your browser is one of your biggest attack vectors.

Also, try setting up a new Firefox profile with firefox -P to check if the profile is to blame.

Chrome Version 57.0.2987.98 (64-bit) is great here.

I cannot duplicate the problems you describe in Firefox 52.0 or in Konqueror 4.14.13 on Slackware --Currrent.

It's seems a rather straightforward and readable website without many bells and whistles (actually, these days, that's a compliment), but I see no distortion.

Are you running any adblockers, script blockers, of such like? If so, try turning them off one-by-one for testing purposes.
