Display varies by browser
Minor differences in how your site appears from one browser to another are normal. These differences are often caused by:
- Browsers using slightly different technology to turn underlying computer code into pages displayed on your screen.
- Whether you're logged in or out of your Squarespace account. Font and color appearance can vary, depending on your log-in state. This is due to font smoothing and antialiasing methods when the browser renders fonts and colors.
Important browser settings
To log into and edit your site, check if these browser settings are enabled or disabled in your browser:
- Browser add-ons or extensions - Browser add-ons might interfere with site editing. While disabling them isn't always required, we may ask you to disable them when helping you troubleshoot.
