User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0 Build ID: 20130326150557 Steps to reproduce: I opened the following PDF file using the built-in viewer: http://www.csee.usf.edu/~labrador/Share/workshops/papers/p291-benton.pdf Actual results: The vertical alignment of the characters is wrong, as shown in the first screenshot: they seem to hang from the line above rather than sitting on the line below. http://i.imgur.com/IsYjubr.png Expected results: The characters should have been aligned as shown in the second screenshot, which comes from Evince. http://i.imgur.com/8JOFnpI.png

Michael, can you please try in safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode) and with a new profile (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles) and see if it still reproduces on your side? Thanks!
Thanks for looking into this! I can reproduce the bug in safe mode and with a fresh profile. My user agent is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0. I'm running Debian Squeeze, but using the latest Firefox, not the one included with Squeeze. Could it be related to the fonts I do/don't have installed?
Priority: -- → P3
I can confirm this on "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:20.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/20.0". I remember that the first release of Firefox that supported pdf natively actually seemed to work.
I wasn't able to reproduce the issue on Firefox 20.0.1, Linux 64-bit. Do you still have this issue on latest Firefox release, Fx 24? How about latest Nightly? http://nightly.mozilla.org/ Thank you.
I can confirm that the issue is fixed in Firefox 24. Thank you!
Thanks for your answer. I'll mark it as RWFM.
