favorites in Hebrew are displayed in jumbled letters

I have imported favorites, but those not in English but in Hebrew letters are displayed as stars with a question mark. Using and changing kode letters under view had no affect. Hebrew appears in web display alright

Re: favorites in Hebrew are displayed in jumbled letters

I am aware of some problems that occur while importing bookmarks in the past, but these issues should not impact new bookmarks created directly from inside Firefox and I am not sure if this could be a font issue as Hebrew displayed right on your bookmark folders and the application user interface.

Does this also happen in the Bookmarks Manager (Library)?

You can do a font test to see if you can identify corrupted font(s).

How have you imported your bookmarks? Have you used the automated process when running Firefox for the first time, or manually imported your bookmarks.html file?

I think I have done it automatically. But even now entering a new site in Hebrew, the same occurs. Even the search results in "ask" appear the same with question marks

Strange is the fact that in explorer and in chrome the bookmarks fuction propperly. Using the code menu did not help in fire fox. I think the problem has appeared only recently after updating firefox version.

Sounds like something is broken in your fonts library, and I suspect it is the famous Arial Black font problem we are facing from time to time on our local support site. Can you read well Hebrew content in the browser, such as this short snippet? — האם הטקסט הזה מופיע אצלך כראוי?‏

We had an issue with importing IE bookmarks containing non-Latin characters back when operating systems such as Windows 98 were relevant, but I don't think this is the case with you.

Can you please start the browser in Safe Mode in order to make sure the problem doesn't occur because an extension or a theme that might be installed on your browser?
