Firefox Not Displaying Characters Correctly
Hello, Firefox folks! I am running Firefox 78.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Recently, Firefox has stopped displaying text correctly. I have attached 2 images of examples of this occurring. I refreshed Firefox some time ago and the problem went away but has since returned.
I would appreciate any insights that you all can provide.
Thank you! -Mark
Hoping to get some help with this. The problem persists. See the attached screenshot from today.
From the hex code in the little boxes you can see that these characters are in the basic ASCII range and this indicates a problem with the font that is used to display these specific glyphs.
You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.
You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text.
You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
