LANG=mr_IN firefox

and cannot reproduce here. What do I do wrong?
Comment 2 Pravin Satpute 2008-09-05 02:18:29 EDT
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??

Reproduced for Hindi in rawhide on the fedora page: http://fedoraproject.org/static/firefox/.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2008-09-16 01:00:13 EDT
Seems to happen for: bn, gu, hi, mr, ne, pa, ta,

but not for: kn, ml, or, si, te, mai (or th)
Comment 6 Parag Nemade 2008-09-16 01:09:46 EDT
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.

As written in firefox-mozconfig firefox builds in rawhide are not using system cairo
as_add_options --disable-system-cairo

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=455647) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
