Description Andrew Schretter 2008-04-29 16:02:47 UTC
Description of problem: Using seamonkey-1.1.9-2.fc8 and visiting web pages with any 'justified' text alignment produces mashed up fonts as shown in the attachment included. The problem is also present in printing. This is an example website that produces the problem http://registrar.duke.edu/bulletins/undergraduate/2007-08/ugbhtml/UGBHTML-04-1.html I have rebuilt seamonkey without pango (commenting out patches 81-88) and it works fine after that. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.9-2.fc8 How reproducible: Very. Every website that uses text-align: justify or align="justify" will cause the problem. Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open seamonkey 2.Browse to http://registrar.duke.edu/bulletins/undergraduate/2007-08/ugbhtml/UGBHTML-04-1.html 3. Actual results: Unreadable fonts Expected results: Readable fonts Additional info: I'm filing a separate bug against firefox for a similar problem. Firefox renders the pages properly for viewing, but renders mashed up fonts when printing these type of webpages. Definitely related, but separate packages, so separate bugs.

Schrett, thanks a lot for your bug report. I've occassionally seen this bug myself but didn't research the cause. I find it great to know that disabling pango fixes it. I can not find a bug filed to Firefox, did you file it? I'm tempted to remove the patches as you did, and stick with the original upstream sources. Chris, Martin, the pango fixes that we copied over from the firefox package, are those from upstream or your own development?
Comment 3 Andrew Schretter 2008-05-01 15:08:52 UTC
I did file a separate related bug against firefox : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=444630 In this case, firefox renders the page properly but printing produces the mashed up fonts. This bug was in turn pushed upstream to see if they will fix it : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=431427

I can confirm this problem. I confirm that disabling all patches fixes this bug, but according to caillon that would disable the ability for asian people to print pages of their locale at all. I ran various tests, which surprise me. I have links to two test pages (including this one) and some results here: http://kuix.de/misc/test_mashup/mashup.html
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 10:36:23 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 07:47:58 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 7 Andrew Schretter 2009-01-12 22:39:07 UTC
Bug has been re-verified to exist in Fedora 10.
