Hebrew fonts problems



Since migrating from Maxthon2/IE8 to FF 3.6 I have Hebrew fonts incompatibility.

First of all the bookmarks , when importing them the Hebrew fonts of the bookmark's title become gibberish. Secondly the tab's Hebrew titles became different and small

Is there a way to fix this ?

Make sure that the exported bookmarks file is in Unicode (UTF-8) format and not in some other (8 bit) encoding like ISO-8859-8

Question owner

1 down 1 more to go (-:

I exported the files from Maxthon2 to IE8 and from IE8 to HTML and then Imported it to FF, that fixed the gibberish.

Now all the imported bookmarks have .url ending how can I remove it ?

How do I change the Hebrew tabs title fonts which are the same as the Hebrew bookmarks fonts ??
