Closing Firefox and re-starting it resolves the problem. I have not installed any other character-sets to the default installation of Firefox. I have not changed default setting for character-encoding. Current settings for character encoding are: Unicode (UTF-8) Auto-Detect: (Off) Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use browser for several hours. 2. Visit a non-Latin website. Actual Results: non-Latin character-sets display as question marks (????) Expected Results: non-Latin character-sets should display as international characters (eg Kanji, Cyrillic etc.) Pentium-D 3GHZ with 2GB RAM.
My browser continues to exhibit this behaviour after upgrading to Firefox/188.8.131.52
