Hi there,

I'm not too familiar with this type of problems, but let me ask you some questions to try to get closer to a solution:

  • Is this a recent problem for you - did you have this problem in your previous version of Firefox or are you a new Firefox user?
  • Have you tried the Encoding options in the View menu? You can press the Alt key on your keyboard to reveal the Firefox menu. From there, you should be able to find the View menu.

Cheers, David

You can use this extension to see which fonts are used for text that is selected (right-click context menu: Show fonts in selection).

You can try different default fonts and temporarily disable website fonts to test the selected default font.

  • Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
  • [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

To fix it in your latest firefox versions (22.0 or later) simply go to

tools > options > content

there you will see the fonts & color menu in the mid section

click on advanced and you will go to advanced fonts field

select the following:

font for: Bengali size:16

proportional: Sans Serif

serif: Siyam Rupali

sans serif: Siyam Rupali

Monospace: Siyam Rupali size:14

DO NOT UNCHECK "Allow pages to select their own fonts, ..." checkbox

and then at the bottom

Set Fallback Character Encoding: Western (ISO-8859-15)

Click ok and ok and voila there you are. All of your problems has been fixed :)

The solution is: Kalpurush.

Probably the font Siyam Rupali does not work in the latest version of Firefox. Change the Bengali font to Kalpurush, and it will work.

Just go to Options and change the font to Kalpurush under Fonts & Colors. Click on Advanced and make all the font options as Kalpurush.

It has worked for me and now I can read Bengali text on websites without any problem.
