Tibetan won't work with new FF; has worked before the recent update to 18.02 (on Mac OS 10.6.8

Posted

I am on a Macbook Pro running 10.6.8. I use Tibetan on the internet quite a lot; recently FF automatically updated to 18.02 and it quit working. Other unicode fonts (such as IPA and Chinese) work fine. It doesn't matter whether I want to type or read Tibetan, neither shows up. I have restarted, reinstalled and restarted (several times), uninstalled, reinstalled, etc. Nothing seems to work.

So Tibetan isn't working here as well?

Question owner

Thanks Cor-el, I turned off (disabled) and turned on (enabled) all the Tibetan fonts I have on my computer. When I turned some on, a few were duplicates and I resolved them. Even though that did not involve the particular fonts used in the Xml database I have, that resolved the problem! Not sure how it worked, but thanks. It also now renders all the Indic fonts correctly.
