Comment 6 Ramon de C Valle 2011-10-18 17:03:15 UTC
It seems that this issue not only affects the versions of FreeType as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5 and 6, but also affects the versions of FreeType embedded in other packages. I'm still not sure if ots can influence on something for Firefox and Thunderbird, because it would reduce its score considerably.
