Mozilla Firefox Encoding Issues


I can't seem to set the default encoding for Firefox to UTF-8. I've tried setting the default under "Fonts & Colors" and changing the order under "Customize List". I really need the default of Unicode. How can I set it?

did you set the LANG and language environment variables?
example for bash(ie ~/.bash_profile)
Code:
export LANG=en_US.UTF8
export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF8
