Rendering of Indian language on Web pages is not correct in Fennec, while native (android) browser do properly
while browsing various local Indian websites, Rendering for Firefox Mobile is bad to read, while in-built browser rendering web context good enough. I tested on Samsung Note/Galaxy SII (and other) and SE Neo V. http://www.bbc.co.uk/hindi/ http://www.google.co.in/ (select Indic locales to test) Android Version - 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 (may be outside India Mobile don't have font or language support). language: Hindi (hi_IN), Punjabi (pa_IN), Gujarati (gu_IN). Attachment shows Rendering Issue with Orange
Is this a font rendering issue? or is the translation wrong?
Your screenshot was a built-in Firefox page, but you list fomr websites in comment 0, so I assume this is a rendering issue. Can you make some screenshots of the web content too?
(In reply to Mark Finkle (:mfinkle) from comment #1) > Is this a font rendering issue? or is the translation wrong? it is Rendering Issue.
This is a known issue - there's no Indic support yet in the harfbuzz shaping engine we're using (see bug 619524), so no Indic languages will display properly. (I believe most devices outside the Indian market - and even some within it - don't have any such support in the native browser either, but recently some manufacturers have started to provide it in their builds.)

#758236 fixed (Last Resolved: 2012-06-02 11:46:27). Waiting for 15 build to test.
with Firefox 15.0a1 (2012-05-12), Rendering for Punjabi and Hindi (only tested) is quite good. All text is readable
