Description Meno25 2009-10-19 18:49:57 UTC
(See URL, copying description by Brion)

Screen shot of main page's page history view in Firefox 3.5.2/Mac on OS X 10.6.1, showing misrendered parens

I'm getting the backwards parens when my default font is set to Times or Helvetica, but parens render correctly when set to Times New Roman or Arial. Ugh.... weird funk with the old Apple fonts? --brion 19:04, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Meno25! Sorry that nobody has taken a look at this report yet and given feedback.

This works correctly now for me in Firefox 17.0.1 on Fedora 16 on

Is this still a problem?
Comment 2 Amir E. Aharoni 2013-01-29 22:06:55 UTC
Well, it WORKSFORME on Firefox 18.0 on Linux, and moreover, ar.wikipedia uses a web font now. But maybe something is still broken on a Mac? CCing Brion.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2013-01-29 22:09:03 UTC
Fine on Mac too in current version. Yay! Closing out.
