I'm using Firefox 3.0.1. I get a strange symbol here instead of an apostrophe.

It looks something like a window with letters in each pane. Something like this....

FF
FD

I don't see this anywhere but WW.

Any ideas what's up with that?

That would depend on what your Accept-Encoding is set to.

What is the setting you see when you go to Tools->Options->Fonts & Colors->Advanced->Character Encoding->Default Character Encoding ?

I'm set for "Western (ISO-8859-1)", and no problems here.

By the way, your version of Firefox is now out-of-date by four releases. The current version is 3.0.5, released yesterday. I'd strongly suggest doing a manual update immediately, and then enabling auto-updates for the sake of your security.

To prevent occasional weird problems, I also recommend un-installing the old version before installing the new version -- at least at every major revision or if not previously done. Unless you specifically tell the installer to delete your personalized settings, your settings and bookmarks will be preserved.

>> "Western (ISO-8859-1)"

That's the setting on my machine too.
