Old mozilla/firefox bug (see also bug #133709), where it insists on nonfree
fonts that we can't distibute.  The fonts as distributed in mathml-fonts are
(should be!) good enough to display any(most) mathml.

Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2008-03-09 22:09:53 UTC
Additionnally we distribute stix which may be more complete than mathml-fonts

Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2008-03-31 18:56:25 UTC
I believe this is fixed in rawhide (and F9 Beta)... would be good if someone
could confirm that.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-03-31 19:02:06 UTC
confirmed, no warnings here on rawhide (using firefox-3.0-0.50... )

Comment 5 Christopher Aillon 2008-03-31 19:35:12 UTC
The upstream patch to fix this was somewhat large and I'd like to avoid taking
non-security or stability fixes for Firefox 2 at this point, so I think this
should just be resolved NEXTRELEASE as we'll pick it up in Fedora 9.
