I had the same problem, with garbled fonts, and I had to change the font setting. To change you font settings, click on the Firefox button, and choose Preferences --> Preferences

There you can change your font setting. In my case I choose Times New Roman, and that fixed my issue. Then click on Advanced tab to further choose your font settings, and character encoding

Hope that this will help you fix your issue. If more help is needed don`t hesitate to ask.
