SVG image using a font specified via @font-face doesn't use the font after it loads
569 bytes, image/svg+xml
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20081206 Minefield/3.2a1pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20081206 Minefield/3.2a1pre When a SVG file references a font via a @font-face rule, Firefox downloads the font but doesn't refresh the document to use it (it keeps using the fallback font), you have to zoom in or out a step to get the document to use the font. Even if the document can't be zoomed, zooming is still required to get the fonts to show. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load image in URL field 2. Observe the 4 X's taken from the fallback font 3. Zoom in or out a single step 4. Observe the 4 X's turn into characters from the Ahem font. Actual Results: Image refreshes to use linked font after zooming Expected Results: Should refresh when the font finishes loaded, not after zooming.
I made a copy of the testcase that still ought to work if you have Ahem installed locally at http://dbaron.org/tmp/reftest/Ahem.svg . I'm attaching it as well (although without a copy of the font). This bug seems to be fixed by the patch in bug 458878, although I'm actually not sure why at first glance.
I created a test page for SVG 1.1 files using CSS to display @font-face referenced fonts within an image. The SVG file is rendered next to a reference image. A number of browsers were tested to see how they perform. In my latest testing, Firefox 11.0a1 (Nightly 2011-12-09) does not display the font correctly within the SVG file.

Works now that svgtext is enabled.
