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.
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.
Image refreshes to use linked font after zooming
Should refresh when the font finishes loaded, not after zooming.

copy of testcase (requires downloading and setting up with Ahem.ttf)
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.

In particular, the fonts tested are Unicode Hebrew fonts, so this test also is a test of BIDI RTL (bidirectional right-to-left) text.
Works now that svgtext is enabled.
