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.: "so¨me" It happens because the string has unicode-escaped characters: "so\u0308me" 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: https://typekit.com/fonts/adelle-web 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 ( http://mozilla.github.io/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)
status-firefox31: --- → affected
status-firefox32: --- → ?
status-firefox33: --- → fixed
Firefox 25.0.1-30.0 are also affected.
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.
