Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use Mozilla 1.5, 1.6a or 1.6b and go to any german website and search for vocals as ä,ü,ö 2. 3. Actual Results: vocals ä, ü, ö, ß are shown as ? though my font setting is 8859-1 (helvetica adobe font) Expected Results: browser should show the vocals instead of "?"
We're going to need more information. Can you give an example site URI? Can you look under View | Character Encoding and see what it says there?
Are you sure the german sites you cite uses ISO-8859-1? Switching to ISO-8859-2 made me see the characters you entered in the report, while with ISO-8859-1 I saw just question marks.
I'm sorry, for some reason 8859-1 works too right now. It was some problem in the browser. You should report some example URI
We definitely need an example or two. http://www.spiegel.de and http://www.nzz.ch (sorry I don't know any Austrian newspaper/magazine :-)) work perfectly well for me. Both sites do not use character entity names but use letters with diacrtic marks directly in ISO-8859-1.
e.g. www.heise.de or my own page www.cpdevelop.de The curios thing is: I switched from helvetica to an other font and back, both 8859-1. I quit Mozilla, emptied my .mozilla directory (of course I made a backup) and started up again. Now it works. I don't really understand why, but it's O.K. The texts can be read properly now. Perhaps it's a result of my upgrades? I left the original Mozilla (shipped with Suse 9.0) where it is and added a new mozilla directory in /usr/local/lib. I added the browser to my menu. I wanted to keep my old settings and mails, so this seemed to be the easiest way.... At the moment I'm really using 1.5, but by the way I've got also my old 1.4 and the newest 1.6b version (for testing).
My guess would be you somehow switched to a different encoding in the menus. That would explain why removing your profile would fix it.
