    Default Firefox gurus please help

    I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.8 on Win98SE on an old machine at home.

    Usually when you hover the mouse over a thread, a small text box pops up showing you a snippet of the text that is in that thread.

    The problem with Firefox is that the CR/LF characters are not recognized, so instead of a few lines of text (eg with Buy/Sell posts), I only get one line of text, broken by hieroglyphic characters.

    Anyone can suggest a fix?

    Thanks.

    I think they stopped supporting Win98SE.

    ff2.0 doesn't show the funny characters, neither does it show paragraphs in the snippets...

    No funny characters, but still one line only (which is truncated).
