That may depend on your OS and the default font used by the skin/browser
I use to have songs in Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Angul, Arabic, Hebrew
in addition to any Latin & Cyrilic mixed with no problem using Win10 2004

because folders look like they are well display, and Artist Title too
the problem look either like old time "codepage" issue in tags or browser font not supporting hebrew charset
IBM Codepage 862 / ISO 8859-8
Windows-1255
x-mac-hebrew / Codepage 10005
when VDJ expect UTF-8 or unicode

Thank you.
So, should I try to change the font in the program itself?

Default Skin "Essentials" layout is using "Arial" on all systems as default for Skin and Browser
It should not be possible to have Skin to display OK and Browser not to display!
if track infos were badly encoded, they should not display correctly in skin as well as in browser
the problem here is Artist Title display OK in skin but not in browser both presumly using the same font
(and working well here) really uncommon

maybe try see how artist/title display in tag editor and try to get "artist/title from filename" again (right cog between Atrist and title) in tag editor
to see if the problem comes from trackname/tags

Change font in the program itself ? not sure,
Arial being one of the more universal fonts widely used by internet browsers

I'm not sure how I can fix it, beside go one by one and re-tag it. :O
* in the tag editor itself (attached screen shot) it showed under "TAG INFO" - File name in Hebrew. ???? interesting.
