Characters that cause the problem include ∀, 2203, and 2208, which are the forall, exists, and set membership math characters. Specifically, those characters are rendered garbled, then if I highlight them, they are rendered correctly, but the left square brackets near them disappear and reappear depending on where the selection extends to. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. View the page at the above URL. 2. In the first inset quote on that page, some of the math characters are garbled. 3. Highlighting the characters makes some of them appear or disappear.
Jason, are you using an xft build or a regular one?
I'm using xft, via Debian's mozilla-xft package. I just checked, and it looks like the problem doesn't occur without xft support enabled.
Thanks for checking. ;) Over to blizzard.

sounds like a duplicate of bug 128153
Created attachment 121858 [details] image of problem Well, this could be the same bug, but I'm seeing character corruption instead of misplacement. In the attached file, the top part shows the initial rendering, the middle shows what happens if I highlight and unhighlight the text (a change in focus also causes it), and the bottom image shows what happens when I highlight a certain space. This is all of that first inset quote. I also noticed that the math characters don't have antialising like the characters around them do.
