Closing the program and re-loading clears the problem. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Unpredictable, but many times occurs when other tabs are initiated. Not obvious when it first happens. 2. 3.
Where does this problem appear -- title bar, tab bar, or both? Can you attach a PNG screenshot?
I see this problem frequently. It only started after I installed language support for Japanese and Korean (I have to look, but I may have Chinese installed) on Windows XP and Firefox. It appears in the title bar of the window.

Most likely, the bytes of the title text are being misinterpreted as UTF-16. But I have no idea why that would happen.
