Hi Everyone: I've just downloaded the Eng version of the browser, kinda new in this stuff ;-) guess it's time to move on form the old IE. Well I've just realized that I can't display Asian Languages, like Chinese and I couldn't find any topic or FAQ related to this matter on the homepage of Mozilla Firebird. Please help!

Go to View> Character Coding> and choose the language you want.

You will, of course, require fonts that support these languages (although this wouldn't be a problem if the sites work with IE).

I'm an Asian user, and FB absolutely works fine.

In your case, make sure that "View / Character Encoding / Auto-detect / Simplified or Traditional Chinese" is checked. If your Chinese font is installed properly and the web server sends correct Content-Type, every page shows well.

If some malicious server doesn't send correct Content-Type, you probably have to manually check View / Character Encoding / More / (pick one).

To find out more, go to ... ex-cn.html
