The reason that bug 354585 was resolved as WORKSFORME is because the issue is supposed to be fixed on trunk builds.

Can you reproduce this issue on trunk? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/
You'll probably want to test with a new profile: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile

I have included three attachements in my last respond for the bug 354585. comment #39 please compare the last three attachments in that tread. In persian like Arabic letters take different form depending where the letters located in the word. These rules as well as spacing is off in new nightly build.

Yes, but using what build? I wouldn't expect anything to change if you were using a branch build. You need to test on the trunk build that I linked.
