Description of problem:
Latest version 22.214.171.124-2 of Firefox made some webpages unreadable. I don't know
You can find examples of unreadable pages from the articles in the following
This bug in 126.96.36.199-2 made me downgrade to version 188.8.131.52-1 which does not
present such problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, on some websites
Same here. Many links start with the right letter and then they all end with a
bunch of _ (right lenght from the original. source html is right.)
FF Plugins I am running:
Pango enabled or disabled?
I can confirm this on linux FC6.
I see it on the front page of www.slate.com.
Following comment #2 I unset MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO (which I had set to 1 for speed
on my 900MhZ laptop)and the problem went away. So it is related to disabling
pango. I see there is a pango update in updates-testing. Should I try that?
i disabled pango because of performance reasons and i get the unreadable
webpages with this configuration.
anyway i can confirm that the problem goes away by unsetting MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO.
