My version of Firefox removes most of the graphics (and functionality) from the BT site (my ISP), but most sites display properly. No idea why it doesn't like BT.

I've tried updating Firefox, but no luck. The installation files seem to be mainly Windows-type (.exe) and not compatible with Linux.

I use the Chromium browser when I go to BT, but it blocks Flash (which also won't update on my version of Linux).

Increasingly, BBC videos don't work in Firefox version 52, which I'm stuck with until I upgrade my OS.

I've got Firefox set to clear the cache when I close it, so that's not the problem.

It may be that those icons might be seen as special fonts.

In which case there's a chance that it could be Firefoxe's page content settings.

It will vary by Firefox versions. Mine is the latest Firefox Quantum 58. In that version you Go: ... Tools>Options>General>Languages&Apearance>Fonts & Colours>Advanced..look for the 'Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selection' and make sure its checked.

If it is checked try unchecking it and restarting FF. Then go back to the setting and re-check the box. ...Restart FF again.

On earlier versions of FF it will be a slightly different path which I now can't remember but it will still start from Tools>Options> ..I think it might have then been 'Content' next

I'm not saying it will be that it's just a guess but its easy enough to give a try.
