Happened to me earlier, for a little while the whole site was messed up for me, in Chrome I was just getting place holders for any graphics,, which
covers the menu, reply and quote buttons etc, just had the place holder box but couldn't select anything. In firefox it just didn't display anything
except the text.
I just left, came back about an hour later and everything was fine
I saw this issue once with one of my own monitors when the cable was loose and it was dropping the red colors. I didn't realize it right away till I
noticed other things looked odd too. Did/does the problem only effect the web page or have you checked to see if it's effecting the colors on your
You using Opera. That browser has all sorts of issues on many of the sites I visit with it. I'm sure if you use Chrome or Firefox you wont see those
issues. For whatever reason, opera gets confused between the various CSS and html5 elements on a page. I've seen the same issues when making my own
web pages and eventually gave up using the browser all together. Opera used to be a very good browser back in the early days when it could pretend to
be any browser you wanted it to be and could do a very good job of displaying pages the way a specific browser could. Now it's just a very poorly
done browser and I've found others more stable and less of a hassle.
I have tried FF and chrome and even the dreaded IE.
Same issues off and on.
I do notice a lot of Opera bashers on ATS, though.
A previous thread I did on similar issues on ATS had a lot of people blaming Opera too until I posted pictures of all the other browsers doing it
(I should mention that my other comp does it too off and on)

If there was an issue with code not interacting with a browser correctly or some aspect of the site was coded incorrectly, I would guess that all
browsers would have an issue. Most sites will dynamically generate a page based on php code, so the end result of a page "might" cause issues with
random browsers but I would suspect that more people would have the issue. So I would venture to guess that it would have to be another element that
all browsers have in common and might vary between computers. Two things I can think off off the top of my head is java and flash. I know that a
recent flash update caused some elements of streaming audio to not work in rare occasions. Even rarer and a really way out there theory, is that a
router is actually blocking some odd element from downloading correctly. I would infer that this happens if a site is offloading some content to a cdn
network. It would then be that one element that prevents a web page from not dynamically rendering correctly. It's also possible that anti-spyware or
anti-virus may be blocking something that causes pages to not work correctly either. Of course I don't know the exact cause of this so these are only
possible places to look.
