I'm running Firefox, 1.5.06
I'll check the settings although whatever happened just started.
I haven't changed my settings, so why should it just start doing this.
Also, some of the sites/pages that I go to, and this hapens on
are typical sites that I've always gone to, like my email at hotmail/yahoo .....
Here is a page that did it.

are you browsing in china? have you checked your page encoding settings? the page you listed came up fine for me.

Nope, not browsing in China.
Like I said its random.
Just going to my yahoo mail, sometimes it comes up like that.
I'm guessing its Chinsese, looks it, could be Korean etc ........ for all I know.
