User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
Build ID: 20161129173726

Steps to reproduce:

open the following pdf in firefox:
https://isites.harvard.edu/fs/docs/icb.topic1140246.files/The%20most%20common%20Chinese%20characters%20in%20order%20of%20frequency.pdf




Actual results:

compare the rendering in firefox (pdf) and native rendering or chrome


Expected results:

result should be visually the same. In practice there are characters which superpose
in the  phonetic forms.

Go to page 2, Seq.Num 2, "Pronunciations", line 3. There is [yí] (accented yi)
written within square brackets. In the firefox rendering the "i" and the "]" superpose
and the result is impossible to read.
