Community Forums Pages Look aweful on FireFox v6.0

Hi all,
I have just downloaded and installed Firefox V6.0 and find that only the Plusnet Community Forums pages really look aweful.  Is it just me finding the layout very unreadable or is it FF v6.0 or is it something done to the pages by Plusnet?
Has anybody with FF v6.0 found this happenning to them?
Will appreciate any comments on the above.
Many Thanks and regards from,
Chandu.

As I hated the new layout I used Stylish to take it back to the version before they messed with it.
So I didn't notice any difference.

I'm also using FF6 and I haven't noticed any difference at all. Still looks OK, exactly the same as before.
But soon there may not even be version numbers:

Installed FF6 this morning and everything looks the same.  Smiley
@OP - In what way does it look 'awful'?

@4C,
All the tabs, e.g. reply, quote etc are bullet pointed on the left listed top to bottom in a column form rather than on the top and bottom in rows.  This makes it difficult to read the posts.
@OldJim
First of all appologies for posting it under wrong topic..

Agreed.  But where does one find the Stylish?
Also, when I load the browser, it comes up with message to effect that the scipt is ........... and I have to click on Continue.  Any idea on how I can mend this?

Isn't this something to do with a style sheet not loading correctly? and a refresh usually fixes it.
I've had that problem occasionally on previous versions.

Re: Community Forums Pages Look aweful on FireFox v6.0

For Firefox 6 you will need to download version 1.2.1 from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/versions/ and then write a new style with this text 
@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("community.plus.net") {

.catbg , tr.catbg td , .catbg3 , tr.catbg3 td, .catbg2 , tr.catbg2 td
{
background: url(http://community.plus.net/forum/Themes/plusnet-brand-refresh/images/com_cat_bg.gif) repeat-x #dddddd!important;
color: #4c4b4f!important;
}
.catbg a, .catbg2 a, .catbg3 a
{
color: #4c4b4f!important;
}
h3.catbg {
padding: 5px 0 0 0 !important;
margin: 0!important;
height:20px!important;
}
}

I was reading this on FF 3.6.20. I saw where Mozilla was talking of dropping the version numbers so I then started up "Chromium" browser (no that's not a mistake, Chromium is the original open source browser which Chrome was copied from. The pages appear exactly the same as in FF.

Hi Guys,
All sorted now.  I had to reinstall the v6.0 and all is now well.
Thank you all for your help.

Re: Community Forums Pages Look aweful on FireFox v6.0

Hello,
Just an update on FF v6.0.
Despite my re-installing FF v6.0 and working fine for a little while, I found it to be very unstable on my 10 year old desktop  Sad and I have reverted back to Firefox v3.6.2, which I find to be very stable.  Smiley I was using FF v3.6.2 prior to updating to v6.0.
I think I will leave v6.0 alone until all the bugs have been ironed out.
Many regards,
Chandu.
