Actual results: Kannada alphabetes with 'dheerga' are not rendered properly Expected results: Kannada alphabetes with 'dheerga' should be rendered as before
Component: Untriaged → Layout: Text

To help developers who are not very familiar with the Kannada writing system, please give a specific example of a word that shows the problem, with screenshots showing the difference between correct and incorrect display. Thanks!
Created attachment 8931843 [details] Screenshot showing the difference New screenshot is added showing the difference between Google Chrome rendering and Firefox rendering. the same applies to menu UI text. I'm usnig Linux, I tested same text with different font size, this issue appears only for few font sizes, for others it works without any hiccup. so perhaps its anti-alias issue related to Linux? As all menu text font size in firefox dev release is bigger than stable release, and as i mentioned earlier, issue appears only for perticular font size. This is there in Dev release menus but not in stable menus
It looks like this could be a freetype hinting issue, maybe dependent on the specific font hinting/rendering settings that are in effect. What font is being used for the Kannada text on your system?
