Why Does Chrome Distort? Facebook front page all messed up.

Recommended Posts

On my machine the Facebook front page (when not logged in) looks smooth and normal (as in the attached image), while on nanna's machine, the same page appears all distorted, with text and images in the wrong places, and colours missing from the main body (see second attachment).We both have Google Chrome 15.0 (the latest version) as our browser and we both use Windows & Ultimate and exactly the same machine.post-46682-0-27582900-1319764107_thumb.png post-46682-0-46414800-1319764103_thumb.pngAs you can see in the image on the left, everything is smooth, with a gradient colour in the background, mobile phone nicely to the left and text normally formatted.However, on the image on the right you see, the mobile phone isn't even there (sometimes it is, although in the wrong place, sometimes it is not there at all), just a white background, and the text is all over the place.Has anyone got any idea what could be wrong with the page on nanna's machine, or what settings need to be looked st?Thanks for any advice.

Hi!It seems to me that the web browser is not loading the style sheets for the page. This is a common issue and can be the result of the connection to the web server being ended because the Internet is considered a rather unreliable medium and web browsers do not attempt to retry the request for a resource. Another reason could be that the web browser has cached an older stylesheet and is not loading the new stylesheet. In either case, you can clear the web browser cache and try again, or press the control key along with F5 to refresh the page while bypassing the web browser cache.BTW, the image attachment was helpful in understanding the problem and I hope my response assisted you in solving it.
