Similar to Arrow next to username shows as empty block, not as arrow in IE8 and Firefox. I see the problem with Firefox 6.0.2, Windows Vista 64 bit (don't ask), Office 2010 installed.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

really, really? office 2010? what does that have anything to do with your browser?? (or does it....) – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Sep 9 '11 at 15:20
@Neal: It installs the Arial Unicode MS font that might not be included with the OS (as per Jeff's answer here:… ) I just wanted to cover that base, that's all. – MPelletier Sep 9 '11 at 15:33
Hmm, maybe this isn't a dupe (Vista vs XP for one thing..), but something has to be wacky on your box, honestly. Can you try on another computer? – Jeff Atwood Sep 11 '11 at 9:37

It is proably because of bad encoding. Read answer in question you have linked. Try to change browser's encoding

SO/MSO et al should (and do) include encoding as UTF-8 in its HTTP header, which my browser is agreeing to. Unless I'm mistaken. – MPelletier Sep 9 '11 at 17:41
