Description Andrea Santilli 2007-02-06 05:31:16 EST
Description of problem:
Latest version 1.5.0.9-2 of Firefox made some webpages unreadable. I don't know
the reason.
You can find examples of unreadable pages from the articles in the following
websites:
http://www.apogeonline.com
http://punto-informatico.it

This bug in 1.5.0.9-2 made me downgrade to version 1.5.0.9-1 which does not
present such problems.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.5.0.9-2

How reproducible:
Always, on some websites
Comment 1 Denis Tumpic 2007-02-06 10:03:18 EST
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:
Adblock Plus
CuteMenus
Distrust
Fasterfox
Firefox Showcase
Habari Xenu
Rikaichan
Leet Key
NoScript
PrefBar
Web Developer

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-02-06 10:07:51 EST
Pango enabled or disabled?
Comment 3 Chris Walter 2007-02-06 20:22:51 EST
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?
Comment 4 Andrea Santilli 2007-02-06 22:06:09 EST
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.
