Dear Firefox, I'm currently using latest firefox browser for desktop. however, I'm having problem with the appreance of arabic text with this latest version where the arabic letters are not properly connected. I did not have problem viewing arabic text with the previous version (3.xx). Kindly look at the following link pic for your reference.https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/WWoRJSPpAWBg5fNjaZYcb430K5mi1N1Y32438iUt0jw?feat=directlink Kindly assist in getting the appearance right.
