    I just opened it and everything i type is backwards. for instance if I type the word "letter" it will come out "rettel". All my bookmarks and saved pages have been cleared.

    It turned asian? [​IMG]

    No, seriously, it sounds like the text direction got changed from left=>right to right=>left. Unfortunately, I don't recall off-hand how to change it back.

    fucking hackers, in your PC stealing your megahertzes.

    Click View, Character Encoding, mine is set to Unicode (UTF-8)... but all in that drop down seem to work fine.

    Another page I found says it's a known problem caused by a Java Applet. kill anything Java, see if it goes away.

    Other than that, F if I know.
