Why does Firefox not display symbols and diacritic marks correctly in html pages

I reset my profile because of a problem displaying a particular web page.
I am now using the reset profile. Using this profile Firefox does NOT correctly display symbols and diacritic marks in my html pages. Such pages were correctly displayed in my old profile. They are pages containing text in French and Spanish.
Examples: é «
Why aren't the symbols and marks displaying correctly in a brand new profile when they displayed correctly in my old profile.

What is View > Character Encoding set to? In my installation it's set to UTF-8.

  • Why does firefox not display photos with Hot spot slices in them

    I took a photo and brought it into Fireworks and created a graphic map with hot spots to certain countries. While this looks great on Internet Explorer its not showing properly in firefox at all. http://www.aist.org/chapters/chaptermap.htm
    Heres the example .

    That website is an MS Office document that has VML content for the images.<br />
    You can see that as green comment code in the page source (View > Page Source)<br />
    Only IE can display such a document properly.
    You need to save that page as W3C compliant HTML code and make sure that you disable VML to make it work in all browsers.
    Looks that something is wrong with the image count for images used when VML is not enabled.

  • Want new tab to open to home page and why does firefox not have a simple check box in the options because I can't keep going through a long procedure each time

    I want new tab to open to home page and why does firefox not have a simple check box in the options because I can't keep going through the long tedious procedure each time I install firefox. It is something that should be in the options tab , and I want to know why it isn't. I am totally frustrated with firefox and getting ready to switch.

    You can use the SearchReset extension to reset some preferences to the default values.
    Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
    If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:

  • Why does Firefox not work here in China anymore, since January of 2015?

    I have used Firefox for years, as the fastest and most reliable browser for me, esp in China... not anymore! Last month (unknown to me) a hijacker called Vosteran took over my Firefox browser. I finally realized it and got it cleaned up using Malwarebytes anti-malware, and downloaded a new Firefox... now SAME problem exists, even with Vosteran removed!
    Firefox will not allow me into ANY normal sites, saying they don't have the proper security code. This includes my Yahoo front page, email account, ESPN and other common sites that are certainly NOT dangerous. So, WHY does Firefox not work anymore? It is useless to me here in China the way it works now.

    hello rickinchina, first please make sure that the '''date, time & timezone''' are set correctly on your system and that firefox is set to directly connect to the internet (that's the "'''no proxy'''" setting in the firefox ''menu ≡ > options > advanced > network > connection - settings...'').
    if this doesn't solve the issue (or it is already set properly), a possible solution depends on different factors:
    * what is the '''error code''' shown under ''technical details'' on the error page?
    in case the error code equals ''sec_error_unknown_issuer'', please attempt to add an exception on the bottom of the error page (but don't do it for real) and inspect the certificate (see the screenshot attached for instructions):
    * which '''issuer information''' does the certificate contain?
    please report back with those two pieces of information. thank you!

  • Firefox not displaying buttons and boxes when allow other pages to use their fonts instead of my selection is selected

    Firefox not displaying buttons and boxes when allow other pages to use their fonts instead of my selection is not selected. The irritating thing is that Firefox used to display pages until FF 31. Please fix this

    The missing icons are supplied by a font that is downloaded from the server (@font-face) as you can probably see by little boxes that show the hex code of the characters.
    You will have to make sure that you allow pages to choose their own fonts to see such an icon font.

  • Why does firefox hang when opening and takes several minutes to come up?

    Why does Firefox hang for several minutes before coming up?

    I am also having this problem. When trying to reboot, I get an endless cycle of the BIOS screen, then "MACHINE ERROR", then back. Running the same dmesg command as snoxu results in a similar error message. I am forced to shutdown by holding the power button. Upon rebooting, I get an error message that all extensions have been turned off (using Gnome Shell). Then I have to logout and login.
    Shutting down and then restarting works fine.

  • Why does Firefox not make visible some of the content on a major corporations employee webpage, although I've tried several things, they work in IE and Chrome?

    The website is https://pshrwb200.jcpenney.com and after I log in, the website comes up but none of the images load. I tried disabling the Adblock Plus and a few other things (no proxy settings, allowed in pop-ups, etc.) which Firefox's help suggest and again nothing works. Also, like previously mentioned, IE and Chrome have no problem with this. Thanks for your help on this matter.

    The website gave me access denied so I can't reproduce this.
    If images are missing then check that you aren't blocking images from some domains.
    *Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the hidden "Menu Bar" temporarily.
    *Check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
    *Check "Tools > Page Info > Media" for blocked images
    *Select the first image link and use the cursor Down key to scroll through the list.
    *If an image in the list is grayed and "<i>Block Images from...</i>" has a check-mark then remove this check-mark to unblock images from this domain.
    Make sure that you do not block (third-party) images, the permissions.default.image pref on the <b>about:config</b> page should be 1.
    Make sure that you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.
    Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own colors.
    *Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Colors : [X] "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above"
    Note that these settings affect background images.
    See also:
    If you use extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) that can block content (e.g. Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flash Block, Ghostery) then make sure that such extensions aren't blocking content.
    <b>If you created this file yourself, disregard this step</b>
    it looks like user.js is currently active in Firefox. The user.js file is only present if you or other software has created this file and normally it wouldn't be there.
    You can delete a possible user.js file and numbered prefs-##.js files and rename (or delete) the prefs.js file to reset all prefs to the default value including prefs set via user.js and prefs that are no longer supported in the current Firefox release. You can get to the profile folder below:
    *Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory > Show Folder
    *Go to '''about:support''' and click Show Folder next to Profile Directory.

  • I am not seeing placeholders for missing or corrupt images. Is there an option to turn these on or off, or does Firefox not display these by default?

    I am a web designer. I use FF as my default browser for everything--including work. When viewing pages containing broken image links or corrupted images, no placeholders show to indicate the problem.
    I have to use another browser to check my work. Placeholders are such basic elements that they should appear without having to switch browsers or search for options.
    Thinking I may have accidentally unset an option for viewing image placeholders, I have looked everywhere in the options (including Web Dev tools) and have searched support. I have found absolutely nothing to solve my issue.
    Firefox--whatever version I had installed prior to a computer reformat and browser reinstall--was doing the same, so please don't suggest a FF reinstall or reset as a possible solution.

    In order to change your Firefox Configuration please do the following steps :
    # In the [[Location bar autocomplete|Location bar]], type '''about:config''' and press '''Enter'''. The about:config "''This might void your warranty!''" warning page may appear.
    # Click '''I'll be careful, I promise!''' to continue to the about:config page.
    #Search for browser.display.show_image_placeholders and make sure it is set to true.
    That was a configuration that was from a very early on version of Firefox, so if this does not make a change there is more:
    What is interesting is that there is also a css that allows the styling of the broken images: [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/-moz-force-broken-image-icon]
    This was an inter sting hack for the personal profile in Firefox : [http://megashare.altervista.org/blog/2012/08/enable-broken-image-placeholders-in-firefox/]
    Please post back with your results, thank you!

  • Why does Firefox not respond to any commands (it wouldn't even want to close) when I try to watch a stremline video from a webpage although all video-plugins are updated? The problem occured spontaneously, no changes were made to the system/settings.

    Firefox does not crash but it 'freezes'. I cannot do anything with it then (it may be closed only from the task manager). Upon each subsequent opening the problem reappears (the fourth day in a row).

    Haroon mentions two solutions. I used the easier one, which is to start the Apache webserver already in Mountain Lion and to enable the php already in Mountain Lion. It worked. I see the file correctly displayed with html, css, and php. I see the page by using Firefox. I enter an address in the address bar. For example, the address might be "localhost/example/example.php". I cannot see the page by using Firefox's "Open File ..." menu option or by dragging the file's icon onto Firefox's icon. I tried using your solution also but was unable to find the specific preference to modify. I found the page of preferences which may be modified but I could not find the one I need. I found a list of descriptions of the preferences at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_:_FAQs_:_About:config_Entries
    but I could not find the specific preference which I need.
    By the way, to enable loading the php module, one uncomments a line of code by deleting the initial "#" character, and one does that by pressing control key and "P" key while the cursor is over the "#" character.
    Also by the way, when I use Firefox or Safari to look at the Apache web directory in which my files are, the files are listed case sensitively. For example, the files are listed: Ace, Zygote, bar. This is because lower case follows upper case. THis annoys me. I prefer case insensitive listing. When I llok directly athe directory without using a browser, the files are listed case insensitively. For example, they are listed: Ace, bar, Zygote. I guess taht Apache is doing this.

  • Why does Firefox not allow me to go to Facebook, consistently says "untrusted connection"??

    I have read through all of the responses to this exact questions posed by other users and nothing is working. What is the most frustrating is that this is not a constant issue. One minute I will be logged onto Facebook and when I try to visit a friends page or post something it will freeze, then the "untrusted connection" comes up. Or it will be working fine for a couple hours and I will log off of Facebook, when I come back a few hours later, or even a few minutes later I get the "untrusted connection" warning again. This has happened more now that Firefox has been updated and it is also happening to my roommate. She will be logged onto Facebook and I will try and get the warning, or vice versa. We are in the same room on separate computers. This problem does not occur on Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. This is an issue with Firefox, not my computers. We have four computers (2 Desktops, 2 Laptops) in our home, my boyfriend works in IT. We have done everything suggested by the people here and nothing works. I would understand if it was happening to one computer constantly and you tried to tell me it was my computer, but that is not the case. This happens with all four computers at different times. How can one person be logged on to Facebook and another isn't, then an hour later it will work on the latter computer and not the one it was working on previously. This is very frustrating. I love using Firefox over Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, I trust it more. But this is getting ridiculous. It has been happening for a long time, it just got worse with the update. Please help. It happens with Google and other popular sites as well.

    This is what it says, every time for me
    ''''''''This Connection is Untrusted''''''''
    You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.facebook.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
    Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.
    What Should I Do?
    If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.
    ''''''Technical Details''''''
    www.facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.akamaihd.net, *.akamaihd-staging.net, a248.e.akamai.net (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

  • Firefox not displaying fonts and sizes properly

    In firefox the fonts are not displaying properly they are either bold or small and bold some text is displayed normally but most is not most is either really small or bold. This is also the case for IE, im on windows 7 running latest versions. However Chrome, Opera and Safari all display correct fonts and sizes it is just firefox and IE that are affected. And yes everything from font size to page size is at default so please dont reply with zoom in and out thanks.

    Hey thanks for the reply. Not sure which one of these worked nothing changed until I restarted firefox.
    You can try different default fonts.
    Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
    [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
    You can also try to disable hardware acceleration.
    Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
    But it is back to how it was thank you very much!
