Firefox displays mojibake boxes for non-latin script (Sundanese and Cuneiform) even after installing supporting font?

Posted

I have installed Google Noto Sans Sundanese and Cuneiform on my computer and Firefox have been able to display some Sundanese and Cuneiform characters (as in the first picture attachment). The problem is that 1) somehow it appears as mojibake in right-click menu; and 2) it also appears as mojibake in these page on wikibooks: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Unicode/Character_reference/1000-1FFF (Sundanese part) and https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Unicode/Character_reference/12000-12FFF and also in wiktionary for example: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%F0%92%8C%8B as in the second picture. I have installed the fonts for sometimes and they still appear like that.

Security Issue: Update your Flash Player Note: Windows users should download the active_x for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the active_x.

Flash Player Version: 23.0.0.185 Flash Player (Linux) Version 11.2.202.637

https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ Direct link scans current system and browser Note: Other software is offered in the download.

https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ Step 1: Select Operating System Step 2: Select A Version (Firefox, Win IE . . . .) Note: Other software is offered in the download.
