Using FINDER on iMac, the Firefox name appears, but the "kind" is in oriental characters. Should I worry?

I downloaded Firefox 16.0.2 (from the mozilla site) on our iMac (Mac OS X 10.5.8) yesterday (11/18/12). When I went to the FINDER to locate the application it came up as: Name: Firefox 16-3.0.2.dmg Kind: written in oriental characters (no English) Last opened: Oct. 24, 2012, 9 am

Thinking I had made a mistake, I downloaded another copy and the same thing happened 3 times!

I am concerned about the oriental characters in the "kind" description. Is this a security risk to my hotmail account and our computer in general? Do we have an incorrect copy or a pirated copy?

Try to do a check for corrupted and duplicate fonts and other font issues:
