Can anyone please advise why I am occasionally getting strange symbols as shown in the two images - one in Firefox & the other in Chrome, instead of text in Firefox ? I am using version 3.6.18 with Windows 7.

Click Tools - Options - Content - Fonts and Colors - Advanced
Set Character Encoding to Western (ISO-8859-1)
Then go back to Content, in Languages click Choose. Make sure only en-us and en is displayed.

Thanks for that devper94. Unfortunately, my settings were already on those.
Any other ideas?
