On certain (very few) web sites, I get a symbols font showing instead of text. For example on www.xe.com I have tried a refresh already, disabled addons etc..

Weirdly, THIS support form suffers from it so I am attaching pictures to illustrate the issue.

I have googled the usual stuff to no avail, so really stuck now...

many thanks for any pointers, Lozzy

Maybe you can find out what font this is about.

You can right-click and select "Inspect" to open the built-in Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Fonts tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
