Typography.com Webfonts Not Displaying Correctly in 32.0.1?

Since Firefox 32.0.1, I'm seeing webfont display / character issues (specifically Typography.com) that weren't present in the previous release. Certain alphanumeric characters aren't displaying at all (the rectangular 'character not available' glyph is displaying in their place) at all - can't figure out what's causing the problem, and it's isolated solely to Firefox 32.0.1 (not present in older Firefox, or in any other browser).

Have only just encountered this issue, so can't shed much more light on the situation at present (not sure if it's related to encoding, how the fonts are requested, etc.) - however, if anyone can provide any assistance, this would be much appreciated.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The issue has now been addressed (Firefox 32.0.1 seems to have 'forgotten' how to emulate small-caps with certain typefaces) - switching to uppercase and offsetting size to compensate has the correct aesthetic affect.

However, not sure why small-caps emulation has ceased to fully work in newest version when no issues were present previously - not technically a solution, just a workaround.

Update - seems to only be applicable to elements with a small-caps font variant.

You can right-click on a web page and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer). You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.
