  10. i reinstalled windows xp pro on my pc after having some issues with a messed up version of xp pro and now when i go to certain sited i am missing some fonts and characters. does anyone know where i can go to get an install pack or something that has the missing items in it? for example, when i go to myspace, instead of seeing the little characters that some ppl have in their names, such as butterflies or skull and cross bones, i get a little box with some numbers in it, other sites i get question marks in the place of letters. its really no big deal, but i would like to see things the way they

  25. so im a user of firefox and ill never switch to anything else, but i recently switched to the firefox 3.5 beta rc2, i like it alot more than the previous non beta version except one thing, i had an add on to remove redirects and it doesnt work with version 3.5. does anyone know how to make it work or if there is somewhere to get a different add on of the same purpose or even a bookmarklet? i know im not the only one that hates those pesky redirects....
