Some symbols are not displayed properly

For some reason, the bullets used to hide a password are not rendered properly in Firefox. As shown by the first uploaded image, they are displayed as big white-filled circles.

This problem does not occur on chromium-based browsers, as shown by the second uploaded image, which is a screenshot taken from chromium, on the exact same session.

I have already done the following:

  • verified that the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box is checked in my preferences. I have also tried disabling and re-enabling this option
  • launched FF in troubleshoot mode to disable extensions and hardware acceleration
  • verified that gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled is set true in my about:config

All of these attempts however failed to solve the problem.

This problem is occurring on a fresh install of a Linux distro, so I first thought that I might be missing some fonts, but the problem might lie somewhere else since the symbols are properly displayed in chromium-based browsers.

I discovered that issue disappears when I remove 2 packages that I had installed from Arch's extra repository: otf-font-awesome and ttf-font-awesome.

I am however still puzzled by the fact that these packages had this surprising effect on FF, but not on other browsers I tried. And those are fonts that I would actually like to use, so it's a shame having to uninstall them.
