It makes the material difficult to read and is very annoying. I went to Internet Explorer to check the page and it displays correctly. The website I have listed to check is http://.www.americanatheist.org/smr97/T3/thermodynamics.html although I have viewed many pages that are having the same problem.

Have you tried changing the character encoding (which tells the browser how to translate bytes into text characters)? If, as in this case, the web server does not tell Firefox which character encoding to use, it will use its default. If this is incorrect, Firefox will not be able to interpret some characters correctly - in this case the left/right double-quotation marks. From the View menu, choose "Character Encoding", then select one of the encodings listed. "Western (windows-1252)" or Western (ISO-8859-1)" show the quotation marks correctly. "Unicode (UTF-8)" does not. To change Firefox's default character encoding, open the Options window, and in the "General" section, click on the "Languages" button, then select a character encoding from the drop-down list.
