Hmmm, do you use firefox as your browser and “localhost” as a part in the base url? When yes...change localhost to 127.0.0.1. That was a bug in the past, maybe the bug is still actuall.

Hmmm, don`t know this problem, maybe he cannot load javascript oder css files, please install firebug (a firefox extension) where you can see javascript-errors and you will see if he try to load files which he cannot.
