After some use firefox displays (repeated) Asian characters instead of actual Tab names. (See Attached image).

It has happened in at least 2 computers. I usually install the same Add-ons with Windows fresh installs.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The McAfee SiteAdvisor extension has been reported to cause issues with text Chinese (CJK) characters appearing on tabs, so you can disable this extension until McAfee releases an update to address this issue.
