OT Firefox issues revisited

I have posted re FF display issues before and the usual reply is "show
me." Well http://www.homedepot.com/ seems to display properly in all my
browsers but FF 7.0.1 (Win XP, Visa, 7).

I have disabled all add-ons and extensions, it's still a mess, but
disabling Javascript seems to resolve the issue.

Does this page display properly (note the search box) for anyone else?

And how does it not "display properly"? Looks the same as SM and IE9.

I may be wrong, but I don't think the horizontal menu "Store Finder |
For Pros | Get It Installed | Tool Rental | Credit Center | Savings
Center | Project How-To" is supposed to be superimposed over the drop
down list and input for the search function, as they are in FF, but not
in anything else (Opera, Chrome, Safari, SeaMonkey, and even MSIE).

It does seem to have something to do with JavaScript, because it
displays properly in FF when JavaScript is disabled. What's curious is
only FF JavaScript seems to be the problem.

I have the problem on several computers running 7.0.1 (XP, Vista,
Windows 7), but they all have similar add-ons.

Another system (running Vista) was running 3.x w/o any add-ons. I
upgraded to 7.0.1, and don't have the problem. That means it's one of
the add-ons, and simply disabling them is unhelpful for troubleshooting.

I guess I will have to remove them one at a time, then experiment with
which I can reinstall w/o issue.

It would be nice to be able to print a list to work from (short term
memory issues), but ironically the add-on that does that isn't
compatible w/7.0.1. Winder if that info is available via a FF xml doc
of some kind.

Thanks Jonathan.

None of that helped. Even started in "safe mode" and still no help. I
may have to uninstall and reinstall FF, but wonder if there is a way to
save passwords etc.

Or you could use the Sync and use the cloud

Or an extension like this

Clean reinstall did the trick. Was able to recover bookmarks and
passwords. Now I need to carefully re-add the tools I need.
