    Viewing math symbols in firefox


    Hello,
    I am using Ubuntu with firefox 3.0, and i am currently doing a math course where there are some tests that are on the internet... the problem being is that firefox doesnt show the correct symbols. They are ment to be math symbols but instead they come out like %$# symbols...

    i was wondering if there is something i could do to help me see these symbols...

    thank you

    I think you might be missing the fonts that the webpage is trying to specify. You can also try this, open FireFox and select EDIT> Prefrences> Content> Advanced> Check the button "Allow Pages to choose their own fonts".
