Completely uninstall CCleaner and see if Firefox behaves. If it does, you know what the problem was.

Just uninstalled CCleaner and Firefox and restarted and reinstalled Firefox. No luck
Is there a way to completely uninstall Firefox and still save my bookmarks, and passwords when I reinstalled Firefox all that was automatically loaded right in so I'm guessing a setting of some sort was also saved that caused the issue.

Looks like the CSS is disabled to me, can make sure that "No Style" is unchecked In View (Menubar)>Page Style?
To uncheck it select the "A" option.

First of all, it's highly unlikely Ccleaner did anything to Firefox. I've used it for years on both Windows and now OS X Lion and this type issue has never occurred. Sounds much more like a corrupt profile or an extension issue.

Try completely uninstalling Firefox. Meaning any and all extra folders left after a normal install. If you don't want to manually delete the folders in these various locations, use AppCleaner: Download AppCleaner for Mac - Uninstall your apps easily. MacUpdate.com

Once AppCleaner is installed, open it. Click Applications, Scroll down to Firefox and check the box next to it. Then click Search on the bottom right of AppCleaner. Several folder locations for Firefox should appear. Then Click Delete.

Re-install Firefox and visit the sites you showed in your original post BEFORE you install any extensions or themes.

That would work most likely, but he wants to keep his bookmarks/login passwords.

OP: It may well be that there is no way out of this other that to delete everything.

Backing up and restoring bookmarks | How to | Firefox Help

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...word-exporter/

However, try this first.
Find your Firefox data folder ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox
Rename it to something different like Firefox(Old)

Reopen Firefox and see what happens on a site that was buggy, if everything this ok then you know your old Firefox folder is messed up.

I looked in that folder but all I found was Library/Application Support/ Mozilla and in Mozilla is just a folder called extensions. ?

Not sure.

Yup thats they system Application Support folder, you need to go to your users Application Support folder.
Quickest way there is to copy the path I posted and paste it into the Go window in the Finder (command+shift+g)
