Actual results: "fi" is replaced by a special character. Expected results: It should read "fi".
Can you reproduce the problem in a brand new profile? https://support.mozilla.org/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles If yes, how about the latest Nightly in that same profile? https://nightly.mozilla.org Which Linux distribution are you using?

With a new profile there isn't problem. I use OS: Manjaro 15.12 Capella Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.2.8-1-MANJARO
Sounds like the old profile was using a bad font in the UI, one with an incorrect OpenType ligature rule for "fi". (Perhaps a font that originally supported a correct "fi" -> "ﬁ" ligature, but then somewhere along the way, somebody modified the glyphs but failed to update the OpenType lookups.)
Thank you very much for your help. I don't know why but with the old profile thre isn't problem yet.
Ah, in that case I'm guessing something (perhaps in a freetype cache?) got confused, such that the wrong glyph was being displayed for the "ﬁ". Glad it's working OK now.
