I have noticed this problem for a little while now.  It seems to be an issue with Firefox, or some combination of Firefox and OSX.  What I see is strange characters instead of the arrows.  It seems that sometimes it displays correctly, and sometimes it doesn't.  It is both in source view (with Unicode characters) and rendered view.  The web page I created as a test case, displays as I expect.  

Have not tested with other OS combination, have tested with nightly build.  Nightly build shows the same problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to page with → ← ↑ or ↓ on it.

Actual Results:  
You get `n IJ ij ` instead of the appropriate arrows.  Copying the text gives the appropriate arrows, but these are not two character combinations, but rather the Unicode for the glyphs.

Expected Results:  
The arrows to display correctly.

Tried with a clean profile with Nightly and the same issue still comes up.
Version: unspecified → 4.0 Branch
