Make character encoding "sticky"

Postby Vance » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:29 pm

I keep going to "View" > "Character encoding" and setting it to Western, then it goes back to Unicode. (I'm using Linux Mint 17.3.) How do I make the choice stick?

On Windows I use Charset Switcher. It remembers encoding choice per site. Sorry can't check on Linux...

If you need to do this every time to have a readable site, then you should contact the site owners to make sure they indicate the correct page encoding.
The character set menu is only there for debugging/troubleshooting/development purposes and should not (have to) be used on a regular basis by browser users.
