Can you try running FF in safe mode? Start --> Run --> firefox -safe-mode
Java shouldn't really make any difference as there isn't really anything utilizing it.. cookies perhaps, or something caching old links/images.. maybe clear cache/cookies and all that..
It's definitely something on your PC/Network as this is the only report i've seen about it. Also try another browser IE or Chrome. Also you can test to see what happens when you visit it through a proxy such as:
Wiihacks - Nintendo Wii Hacks Community [Anonymoused]
K ran through proxy via FF, same result. Ran the safe mode command opening a second FF, same result. Tested via opera and the installed version of IE (pre-installed with windows) which I believe is 6.0. I'll grab chrome and see what happens with that. I've cleared temp inet a few times already. As far as my network goes the only thing I've done differently this time was enabling QOS (quality of service) and routing my services for it through the router via port #'s. Qos shouldn't effect this I wouldn't think, it's not directed to QOS port 80 or 8080. I'll try shutting that off also just for giggles.
Attached is my FF error console if this helps at all.
Update: Tried chrome. LOL it's worse! In chrome I can't edit my post, it's just grey with a twitter icon, 2 spaces to the right is quote reply, other options are gone.

are you using any kind of FF addons/extensions? ah just saw your list. really you should try to reinstall, (copy your addons somewhere else) and re-ad them one by one, bet it is one of those
when you tried the older FF version did you just uninstall or also erased the folder, addons/settings etc often leave behind.
had similar strange problems with an addon called wappalyzer on a different forum. it was interferring with the code and appearence of a site.
also deinstall java stuff, everything, reboot, reinstall the basics, only the java runtime at first might help
Well bud, I believe it's not FF as I've tried Google chrome, IE6 and opera and they all look the same. That leads me to think it's a local issue with java/my pc or wiihacks. Oddly wiihacks changed their styles the same day I formatted so I can't say for sure who's side it's on. Lastly every other page on the net loads with styles and formatting. It's like I set something to prevent style only on wiihacks. I did try uninstalling java, even used jre 5 with the same results. Post format I did nothing unusual to my system other than setting QOS. I did check my hosts file within windows making sure that wasn't effecting anything. Wiihacks nor any of it's ad servers were listed (this was done via spybot search and destroy - immunize wizard.
I did wanna say, I REALLY appreciate every post everyone has posted. I don't expect to be helped and if at any time anyone feels this is a loss, please move on =) I don't want to hassle anyone over a possible ID 10 T error on my side =) But I do appreciate everyones input. Wiihacks community is second to none IMO. I really enjoy the reading and people here so much that I refuse to ditch the website over this issue. Again thank you everyone.

Did you try fatal's suggestion to access wiihacks using the anonymouse proxy? Same problem? How about try another PC, but on your network. Each attempt and variation provides more clues. To date, no one else has reported the same problem. That just means the problem is most likely to be something on your PC, browser, network. Doesn't mean we give up because your access and your active membership here does matter to us. Try the other suggestions and report back, please.
By the way, the new style (mobile) was an addition, not a change to the default WiiHacks style. I thought maybe with your updating, the default site style had gone off-kilter and just telling the browser to use a specific style would help-sorry it didn't work out.
Yea thanks for the efforts in my errors. I'll relist into this post all variables and things I've tried. Post is getting a bit long for readers.
Tried: Java version 5 and 6. No difference.
using a anonymous/proxy to wiihacks. no change
changed styles withing firefox basic/no style. no change
used firefox 3.6.7 and now 3.6.10.
Alternate browser used. Opera, IE6 and Chrome. no change
I am admin within windows. dont think its user rights.
changed styles bottom left for wiihacks. no change - mobile does work, not navigable.
added wiihacks.com too all java whitelists and firefox addons.
disabled firefox addons and updated all plugins requiring such.
emptied temporary inet folder on 3 different occasions.
checked system event viewer for any suspicious errors or msgs. none found
ran chkdsk and did a defrag analysis. no errors found, drive did not require defragging.
Checked host files on windows also checking spyware immunizations for any wiihacks or ad related sites. none found
Pulled out a lot of hair and yelled at the sky. lots of hair lost, no change in wiihacks.
The list is narrowed down to one thing that I can think. Reformat and try again. Really!! lol
.. checked another pc and it's looking great. This pc is on same router as well same hub. Wouldn't think now it's anything to do with routing QOS or a routing issue. Leaves me with it being solely my pc. Hmm.....

BTW what OS are we talking about? you didn't mention it i think, Realplayer 6, office 2003, kinda old, even for some plug ins, sry some XP/vista?
you tried cleaning some stuff out of C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\
like deleting Mozilla folder or something.
also there is some mobile FF version around. no installation thing. can you try that too
Windows XP sp2 is my OS. Real player 6 is pre-installed by the latest firefox. Office 2k3 I used because 2007 is MUCH different and I don't much know how to use it as well. So I stuck with 2003. The os is old I know. Be aware it's the same OS that worked a week ago. Same install CD used both times, exact same drivers stored on my storage drive was used for java and hardware drivers. I re downloaded jre 5 and uninstalled 6 had no change, reinstalled 6, same no change.
I don't have a roaming folder. Not sure what it is but if it refers to windows roaming profiles, I don't use roaming profiles within windows. Please note this install of windows is only a week old. It was reinstalled using all same methods and program installers I had previously. I'm so at a loss of what it could be as I've tried all my other bookmarks and they all display fine. Whatever this is solely effects wiihacks. As if I black listed java from wiihacks some how. As I've tried many different browsers, I wouldn't think it's firefox related what's so ever. More so java or system related.
I'll uninstall all java from Safe mode under admin and start again.
vinatec is referring to the portable version of Firefox. You can download a version at the portableapps website, if you want to give that a try HERE.
EDIT-just saw your reply. I, too hate the new MS Word and have 2003 on one of my PCs, but can;t find the original to install on the others. Fortunately, OpenOffice works fine.
Starting over on Java is OK, but I don't think Java is responsible for the problem. It is more likely to be some network-related setting as all your browsers appear to be affected. Some time ago, we had some problem with some antivirus programs thinking WiiHacks was a virus or something strange. I thought fatal addressed that issue but just throwing it out there. Disable your protection software and try the site?
yes thanks, portable not mobile
how long have you been on the previous install? long enough to update to sp3 and forget about it ?
maybe you want to go for that too
yes, nevermind with that roaming stuff just an idea for some older app folders with config files or something, in your user folder somewhere.
