    Right or control click the Safari app in the Applications folder then click Get Info.


    In the Get Info panel, if the box next to:  Open in 32-bit mode   is selected, deselect that box, quit then relaunch Safari to test.

    it is unselected by default on Lion. I think this problem is safari specific.

    This does not solve the issue. deselected by default here. Have had this issue using gmail in Safari only forever.


    Got over it in the past by using Firefox - now with retina screen and firefox slow on the update, I am again getting question marks to replace Chinese text in attachments from gmail downloaded in Safari alone.

    Same issue here! Unsolved after YEARS of this issue.


    I dig through the downloads folder and paste a copied file name at least 15 times a day.


    And Mountain Lion was supposed to be a big push for Chinese language users. Still a fail.


    Really want to be a Safari supporter - would love to see this solved, Apple.
