Reporter, are you talking about the Konkani language (not Konani or Kokan), like explained on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konkani_language (kok in iso 939-3) ? Can you give us some examples ?

And what script would that be ? Devanagari, Roman, Kannada, Malayalam ? I think they all work in Firefox 2.0, at least on Windows : <http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/#links>. But we're still missing support for complex text rendering. You can see that here:
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Enabling_complex_text_support_for_Indic_scripts#Check_for_existing_support>.

But font-support is different : we're not supporting dynamic (downloadable) fonts for instance, see bug 52746 and bug 70132. If the website uses UTF-8 encoding (and has the proper font), then we should be able to display the content.

PS : you claimed in bug 336059 that it works in Firefox 1.0 ...

You have the following choices: 
Depends on: 381120
No longer depends on: 381120

Reporter, if you still see this problem then please reopen this bug. Thanks!
