Description of problem:
The update broke font rendering and text box handling.
I strongly suspect the changelog entry which basically says "use pango" is going to be responsible. Let's look at the two breakages:

Font rendering: italic fonts are rendered clipped at the right-hand side. It's very noticeable and ugly. Let me know if you want before and after screenshots.

Text box handling: Using the "home" and "end" keys doesn't always work properly. Pasting in text with the middle button sometimes pastes at the beginning of the line rather than where the cursor is.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firefox-1.0.1-1.3.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:

The italic fonts issue should be fixed in the update we just did.  The text box
handling seems to be this bug that I just filed:

OK, both of these issues should be fixed in 1.0.3-1.3.1.
