Restarting your desktop should fix it. That's usually a font caching problem.

I will do a triage very soon.
Comment 4 Caius Chance 2008-08-06 02:35:06 EDT
Triaged with the following:



- Configured firefox 3.0.1 with Liberation Serif as default font and loaded the html code provided by reporter, it is shown correctly.

- Started gucharmap and select Liberation Serif font. Searched U+2014 and it also displays correctly.

- Opened LiberationSerif-{Regular,Bold}.ttf with fontforge and searched for U+2014. There is correct glyph in U+2014 codepoint.

This bug should be closed 'notabug'.
