Firefox 3: Unicode font problem solved!

I have been using Firefox ever since its launch. But the one big problem I had with Firefox was that the unicode fonts used to appear scrambled on it. But with the launch of Firefox 3, this has been solved. Unicode fonts now appear brilliantly. What a relief! I have been using Internet Explorer only for reading Malayalam websites. Now, thankfully, I can use only one browser to surf the net. Thanks Mozilla!

  1. Re: AMITHThanks a lot for sharing your views here. It has been a big problem until now. I needed to use IE for reading unicode fonts. But thanks to Mozilla, everything is perfect now. The fonts appear brilliantly and beautifully!

  5. Sree, I’ve no other option but to use firefox, because i use a SuSE linux box. so Firefox 3 having unicode support is great. What font do you use for Malayalam BTW, Is it AnjaliOldLipi/Rachana or something else..? Also firefox 3.0 on linux requires GTK 2.10 which comes only with OpenSuSE 11.0. So still struggling with scrambled fonts..until i get the new DVD. 😦
