Description of problem:
Firefox shows some garbage devanagari characters in some website. Lets say in
same thing is happening with many website
in some website if we zoom view of firefox it gives proper result and again after zooming out it gives same result
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change locale to mr_IN
2. start firefox
3. open following link
showing some garbage Devanagari characters in English paragraphs
It should not show garbage characters
tried by changing encoding, font but nothing giving different output
and cannot reproduce here. What do I do wrong?
It is still coming
problem looks with rendering side,
since if i increase the size of text(zoom), everything looks nice
can you try by reducing size of view?
is there any dependency firefox has which i have not told you yet??
I confirm this bug exists with following image
Reproduced for Hindi in rawhide on the fedora page: http://fedoraproject.org/static/firefox/.
Seems to happen for: bn, gu, hi, mr, ne, pa, ta,
but not for: kn, ml, or, si, te, mai (or th)
yes bug exists for bn, gu, hi, mr, pa, ta Indic locales in rawhide
also exists for bn_BD locale.
I can see English text for http://fedoraproject.org/static/firefox/ only after I keep zooming in. Otherwise default text appeared in mix like for locale in which firefox started and English alphabets.
