User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140605174243

Steps to reproduce:

Umlauts and accents are rendered next to the character and not as a part of the character when using the Adelle font, e.g.:


It happens because the string has unicode-escaped characters:


As you can see, it has the char "o" and then the umlaut char - "\u0308".

The issue happens on Firefox Mac OS with Adelle font, that we use. I tried with Chrome Mac OS with Adelle or Firefox Mac OS with different font - the "ö" is rendered properly.

The Adelle font is actually able to render umlauts - if one tries with "ö", which is an html entity for "ö", then it's rendered properly.

So, I think, this is just because of the way, the char is encoded - the "o" char itself, then the umlaut char. I've tried also "söme" or "so¨me".
The issue was still there.

Trying this out by copy-pasting: "söme" into the third tab of:

reproduces the issue, but only on 31 (released Real Soon Now), not on 33 nightly... not sure where this was fixed. If you found a regression window with mozregression ( ) then we could look at uplifting to 32/31 ESR if possible, depending on the patch that fixed this...

(I *think* mozregression supports looking for things which have been fixed instead of things that have been broken, assuming you pass it a --good date that's more recent than the --bad date)

Per comment #1, this should be fixed for a while now, so marking WFM. Please reopen if you can still reproduce on a more recent Firefox build.
