SourceForge broken – only for one browser on one machine

Broken SourceForge
Broken SourceForge

SourceForge is broken and looks like this, but only for FireFox 32 and only on one of my four Win7 x64 machines. Works fine on MSIE 11, and Linux Mint 17, FFox 32 on VirtualBox on the same machine.

Many things do not fix this problem:

  • Clear the entire browser cache, history, and sourceforge only or all cookies.
  • Mess with various settings in Ghostery and block and unblock many of the trackers. With the same tracker block profile on other machines those work fine.
  • Remove any unnecessary plugins and extensions. LastPass, Ghostery and Flash are the only ones left on all the machines. No difference.
  • Uninstall and re-install FireFox.
  • Flush the DNS cache.
  • Reboot the system.

No joy after all of these attempts. Anybody got an idea to fix this?

Update: 11 Sept 2014 All fixed. Who knew. Maybe some mirror had a bad CSS file. Anyway. All better now. No clue why one of my systems was bad, and why clearing the cache and cookies didn’t fix it. Sigh… Summer lightning.
