FireFox and EliteTrader

    I have a little problem when reading EliteTrader using FireFox (, see screenshot.

    I don't remember since when this problem exists, maybe since the last update of FireFox.

    Opera and IE 6 don't have this problem.

    I tried several different code sets in Firefox, but this does not make any difference.

    Any Ideas?

    Many Thanks

    Same version, no problem. I use ISO-8859-1 character encoding. With other encodings I do get a question mark, although not the same you get.
    At the moment I'm using XP Pro SP2

    I'm using the same encoding but Windows 2000. Maybe that makes the difference?

    I wouldn't say it's very likely, but at the moment I don't have better ideas. The weird thing is that it works with IE. I assume you use the same fonts.
    Another difference might be that I didn't install I had 2.0, and I updated it.
    Also, I don't know in what language you have it. I have the English version. Windows is also in English

    I'm using German language settings.

    The font does not seem to matter: I tried several (among them Arial, the one used by IE).

    Since Opera and IE don't show this glitch, I guess it must be something about the way FireFox processes the character encoding.

    I'm using the latest version of Firefox on 2 Macs and the Elite Trader site has no problems. I also use it on my Windows-equipped Mac (Parallels) on occasion and have no problem on this site with either the text of graphs.

    I'm using Firefox on a mac and there's no problem on this end.

    That was my first guess, but with the same version and same encoding I have no problems.
    It's strange, because this looks really like an encoding problem.
    Maybe you should try on XP

    It is - but only on this computer. I have a second one with the same versions of W2000 and Firefox and it does display the pages properly. I compared the obvious settings in Firefox - they are identical.

    So it looks like something in the installation of Firefox on my main computer is kaputt.

    I guess I should have made this test before posting.

    Many thanks to all who answered.
