The top portion of your image appears to be what should appear at the bottom of the page (based on the copyright line).

Is it truly loading twice (at the top as your image shows and at the bottom)? If so, take a screen shot of the top & bottom of the page that loads.

Check your addons, and do a virus check. This should probably be moved to Help Desk. I don't think it can be fixed server-side.

Hm, strange. Since no one else has reported this happening, I will move it to the help desk but leave a shadow topic here for you to follow. You may want to check with FireFox to see if this has been reported by any other users on any other sites.

If anyone else does experience this problem, in particular with this site, the pm myself or another member of the mod team and we'll move this back to S/F I.

If you run Firefox in Safe Mode, does it still do it? If that fixes it, try disabling all your extensions, then re-enabling them one at a time, see which one breaks it.

Code: Select all

enum ಠ_ಠ {°□°╰=1, °Д°╰, ಠ益ಠ╰};
void ┻━┻︵​╰(ಠ_ಠ ⚠) {exit((int)⚠);}
[he/him/his]
