User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0
Build ID: 20160209163643

Steps to reproduce:

See https://cdi2tp.math.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/texto/ using Firefox 44 on Linux. The page uses CSS 3 hyphenation and the character set is UTF-8. Check the word "cálculo" in the first few lines of the content or see the included image.


Actual results:

cálculo appears hyphenated as cálc-ulo which is wrong. I occasionally see other examples of the same problem always in words with accented characters. My texts also use MathJax which might be relevant. No problems in non accented words. I was unable to find one such example on Windows so this might point to some Linux specific library.


Expected results:

Hyphenation for this word should be cál-cu-lo
