User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130309001430

Steps to reproduce:

Opened pdf from http://www.hiik.de/de/konfliktbarometer/pdf/ConflictBarometer_2012.pdf
on www.hiik.de.


Actual results:

PDF was then shown in FF browser tab, with seemingly random inversion of upper/lower-case letters on several pages (e.g.: p.3, see file attached).


Expected results:

Should have rendered with proper upper/lower-case letters (see file attached). 
-> PDF in question works fine in external pdf viewers.

- Confirmed on 5 different systems (Archbang, Win Vista, Win 8; laptops and stand-alones), all with FF 19. 
- On Archbang, FF 19.0.2 still contains the bug. 
- On a Win Vista Machine, FF 22.0a1.en Win 32 (firefox-22.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe) did not contain the bug any more. 

- Might be related to the following bugs by nature of error:

I checked on a recent Nightly and the internal PDF Viewer: the case looks ok. Could you check with Nightly, too?
