Firefox in MacOS is not rendering fonts which has Arabic content.

Here is one sample glyph form svg font: <glyph d="M960....." horiz-adv-x="1025" unicode="ت"/>

Tried replacing arabic with english text and it works! <glyph d="M960....." horiz-adv-x="1025" unicode="A"/>

I am using fontforge to convert svg to woff and otf fonts. How can I fix the problem, am I doing something wrong font generation?
