User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.2) Gecko/Debian-1.5.dfsg+1.5.0.2-3 Firefox/1.5.0.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.2)

displays "binary garbage" symbol for no good reason



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make a file containing just this:

∣

(seven characters, plus newline).  It renders correctly, as the vertical
bar character.

2. now add some text after the symbol:

∣bogus

...still OK.

3. now add a space between the symbol and the text:

∣ bogus

oops, firefox renders binary garbage symbol, and spits out this message to stderr:

Warning: mozilla_decoder_get_glyph doesn't support more than one character conversions.

WFM.

Can you reproduce this with an official Mozilla build of Firefox?
That silence sounds like a "no".
