Weird junk characters in Firefox? Answered
So, I have this annoying problem with Firefox...
As I browse the web, opening and closing tabs, I get an accumulation of (Japanese?) characters all over the tabs at the top of the screen. It starts with one or two, but soon builds up to obscure the tabs, so that I can't find the Xs to close tabs, or even switch between them (see the screenshot).
The characters occur no matter what websites I do or do not visit.
It eventually gets to the point where I have to close the software to get rid of the mess.
The problem has persisted through uninstall/reinstall of the browser, and the only add-ons I have running are a dictionary and McAfee site advisor.
Yes, I know I could just switch to Chrome, but FF is my favourite browser.
Anybody know a cure?
