Quick Mozilla question, hope you help me out here. How do you make mozilla read tamil fonts (vikatan) .all I get now is a lot ?????. also I am not able to login to secured sites like my online back account and credit card account. I am using mozilla in safe mode.

Hope you don’t think this is too much. Thanks for your help.

I have trouble with Tamil fonts on ffox too :)
Will get in touch with a friend who might know of a solution.

And about the the Secure site problem, check if "SSL 3.0" is checked against, under Tools > Options > Advanced > Scroll down to 'Security'.

Safe mode shouldnt be an issue.

[hey, not a problem at all in asking this]

Alright, here's one solution that worked for me.
1. Installed Vikatan font from within "Font" Folder.
2. View > Character Encoding > Auto-Detect > Universal
3. And make sure Character Encoding is not set to "User Defined" [I had Western ISO 8859-1]
