Those are just broken web pages that are not send as real characters, but are escaped.

You can unescape the text with this code in the Web Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer)

E=document.querySelector(".spl-stryMn > span:nth-child(5) > p:nth-child(1)");
E.innerHTML=unescape(E.innerHTML);

E=document.querySelector("#special_story > span:nth-child(4)");
E.innerHTML=unescape(E.innerHTML);

Right-click the text and open the Inspector. Right-click the HTML code in the left pane and use Copy Unique Selector to copy the selector to the clipboard and use it as selector in the above posted JavaScript code.

Character Encoding is still supported.

  • View > Character Encoding
  • Tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu bar.

You can find a Character Encoding button in the Customize palette ("3-bar" Firefox menu button > Customize) that you can drag on a toolbar or in the Firefox menu drop-down list.

It does work differently. You can look here to set a fallback character encoding:

  • Tools > Options > Content > Fonts & Colors > Advanced > Character Encoding for Legacy Content

If you are referring to the link that you posted in the other thread then that is escaped data and send as such by the server. Google Chrome displays it in the same way.
