Bug Description
fails in Ubuntu on

Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060921 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/

We get boxes not characters, in some cases. This is a Ubuntu issue not generic firefox, as reports say it is okay on the bug 1 platform.

But not in galeon, which has other issues.
Galeon 2.0.1 soon to be reported. :)

Opera 9.01 displays the page correctly, however it replaces the trouble characters with generic, unstyled ones.

See for an example. The top half is from Opera, the bottom half is from Firefox.
