Does this happen on all Japanese websites?

Can you attach a screenshot?

  • use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
  • make sure that you do not exceed the maximum size of 1 MB

Here is a copy/paste from a site named GameFaqs of a game walkthrough and his explanation from 2009 on how to fix the symbols to read as Japanese. The unreadable symbols at the top are what Firefox does to his Japanese. 白騎士物語 ~古の鼓動~ White Knight Chronicles "Part I" Complete Japanese Guide

Version 2.00

  • YOU MUST ENABLE UNICODE ON YOUR BROWSER TO VIEW JAPANESE CORRECTLY*

FireFox User instruction: Click on "view" on the browser menu, Select "Character Encondings," then find "Unicode (UTF-8)" to view the Japanese correctly.

You can go here yourself and see what it looks like:

That page is send by the server as text/html;charset=iso-8859-1. Firefox uses for me windows-1252 as seen in "Tools > Page Info > General" You need to change the encoding manually yourself to Unicode. That works for me.

  • View > Text Encoding > Unicode

You can tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu Bar
