f* how can I show you what happened if I can't upload a graphic of what happened? I cannot reproduce the problem here. The "Firefox logo" at the top, next to it says "Enter a bug" - Mozilla Firefox - all these were in Chinese or Japanese characters until I closed FF and restarted it. Is this normal??

Reproducible: Always

English Title mysteriously changed to Chinese

Thanks for the link. I could not see an attachment on the bug report page, hence my frustration. Please look right at the top of the graphic.
Jim, any idea what might be going on there?

Looks like the titlebar text was set to a corrupt unicode string. nsIWidget's SetTitle takes wide charatcer strings, maybe something is setting that using ascii or utf8?

Ian, is this an english version of windows?

Can you try disabling your add-ons to see if the problem goes away?

err, YES, Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit ... I have been downloading some Cyberlink products ... 1.08GB that took somewhat more than 17 hours to complete ... uninstall, reinstall, the usual procedure with Windows ... nothing spectacular or earth-shattering, and okay, I will disable the add-ons and see if it happens again.

Due to the age of this request, please close it as it is YEARS old and must have been rectified by now. It has not happened since.
