I found a post dealing with the same subject, but it doesn't look like a solution was discovered. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18015
I use iMacros for FireFox (Version 8.9.7). I am trying to extract data from a page with special characters in to a CSV. When I extract a word like "Düsseldorf" I get "DÃ¼sseldorf" in the csv.
Does anyone know a solution to get iMacros to extract the word as it is written on the page?

Also, when I remove the "SET !EXTRACT_TEST_POPUP NO" so that iMacros shows a prompt with the extracted text the characters display properly in the prompt window, so it's only a problem in the csv file.

FF Version - 47.0.1
FF Language - US English?
FF Text Encoding - Unicode
I appears as though the problem may be the program I am viewing it in. I am using Excel for Mac 2011 (Version 14.3.. At the moment my character settings seem to be set to Western European, but I had changed that to UTF-8 when I was testing the file. I tried the csv file on a PC and it worked fine (Excel 2010. Version 14.0.4756.1000). Do you have any idea why it may not be displaying properly on a Mac? I've read a few posts about Excel for Mac not handling unicode very well.
