How do you avoid the "undisplayable character boxes" you see when encountering a new or unknown language script?

For example, this
page should display music notes. Instead, I just see characters like this:
in boxes. Browsing the web on my iPhone, it doesn't seem to have any problems properly displaying Chinese, Russian, or Greek characters for example. Is there any way to provide my firefox browser the same capability? Is there a 'Unicode font pack' that I can install?
Even though I can't understand any of those languages, it's just ugly.
