Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.8) Gecko/2009032608 Firefox/3.0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.8) Gecko/2009032608 Firefox/3.0.8

The character sequence ch (छ् / छ्) is rendered as cha (छ / छ), i.e., without the virāma, whenever it occurs anywhere except the end of a word.

Thus: 
(1) kacha कछ कछ
(2) kach कछ् कछ्
(3) kachaka कछक कछक
(4) kachka कछ्क कछ्क 

The last of these should *not* look identical to (3), as it does, but should look like (2) with a क at the end, e.g. like "कछ् क" without the space. Or it can look differently depending on what ligatures are formed, but (4) is definitely not right.

Reproducible: Always

I notice this behaviour in Safari too -- it is possible that this is not a Firefox bug, and simply a bug with the Devanagari MT font shipped with Mac OS X.

I don't have another font I can test this with, but if it happens to not be a Firefox bug, sorry about reporting this.

FWIW, this is what it looks like in a trunk build on Linux (Kubuntu 8.04).
This is a mass search for bugs which are in the Firefox General component, are
UNCO, have not been changed for 500 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10 or later, create a fresh profile, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/managing+profiles, and test again. If you still see the issue, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the status to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.
