    Up until I ran the command "sfc /scannow" FireFox was fine. Now, pages load up weird. I've tested IE7 to see if this a problem affecting all browsers, or just FireFox. It's just FireFox. IE is crap IMO so can you guys help me? I've tried reinstalling FireFox, but no dice. I'm running FireFox 4b12.

    Try clearing the cache, or deleting all the cookies and stuff in your history.

    Also try waiting for a little while and then trying again; Firefox can be a little moody.

    Looks like its not loading the css, is it set to show websites with no style?

    I may be a little dumb, but what is "sfc /scannow" and how does it apply to Firefox?

    Clearing the cache and stuff seems to have done the trick. Thanks!

    Looks like a cache issue, just clear it like Slyakin said and see what happens.

    SFC is "System File Checker". What it does is, it scans through your system files and makes sure that they are all what they should be. This can cause "issues" with things that modify system files, of which Firefox doesn't to the best of my knowledge.
