Firefox does not support overflow-wrap: break-word; for Microsoft Himalaya. Chrome & Safari wrap the font properly. It's a unicode problem and has to do with including the proper unicode for the Tibetan syllable division symbol in the library of word break parameters. Go to any website in Tibetan on the Firefox browser and you will see sentences running off the page or creating horizontally scrolling pages. The same website will display fine on Chrome and Safari. If anyone knows of a workaround, let me know. I've tried all the usual suspects. Tibetan uses [U+0F0B TIBETAN MARK INTERSYLLABIC TSHEG] (pronounced tsek) to signal the end of a syllable. This was discussed on Bugzilla - Bug 397597 - and was marked resolved and fixed but it most definitely was not. It was put aside.

In current Firefox releases the code would be in this file, but I don't know what to look for.

Thanks for the info. That's a bit over my pay grade. I just dabble in PHP and jQuery. :) There is probably a way to use RegEx to add no-width unicode whitespace after the Tibetan syllable delimiter tsek character, U+0F0B, but I don't want to screw up or slow down my Tibetan websites for Chrome and Safari which are actually the more common browsers used by my clients.
