Upon loading Firefox 3 for the first time (after a system restart), spacing between words on all web pages and chrome pages were the width of 4-5 spaces instead of one. The only text not affected is the window titlebar. Even in a newly created Hardy user account Firefox still has this appearance. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Firefox or other Gecko 1.9 app Actual Results: Words have larger than normal spacing between them. Expected Results: Normal spacing. Firefox Beta 2 didn't have this issue. First appeared with FFB3.
From https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox-3.0/+bug/193108/comments/16: "The culprit appears to be the pango-graphite package. If I purge it, the Exceptions and spacing bugs go away, suggesting that Firefox has no clue how to deal with the Graphite extensions to TrueType/OpenType fonts." Does it help if you remove that pango-graphite package from your system? That may be a bug in pango-graphite, implying this one is INVALID.
