Description

a year ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160923185034

Steps to reproduce:

I installed all Google Noto Fonts (https://www.google.com/get/noto/) and Firefox still does not support the display of Linear B script. See for example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_B#Unicode
Characters are correctly displayed on Chromium 53.
I used Mageia Linux 5 64-bits and firefox 45.4.0 packaged by the distribution.

If you try the latest Firefox release direct from Mozilla (see https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/desktop/), does that make any difference?

(It works for me with Firefox on Ubuntu 16.04, using either the distro build of Fx 47.0 or a more recent version from Mozilla.)

Unfortunately, it still does not work. I downloaded the latest Firefox version (49.0.1) , created a new profile and I still see squares with number inside.
