Known Issue – In a mixture of English and Myanmar texts in Firefox in Windows 7, English texts may lose kerning and combine together rendering unreadable. Update:11June2011# Padauk font English glyphs will have same bug on Firefox 4+ on any version of Windows. Update:13 July 2016# It’s not font issue, rather Firefox turning the Graphite features off (which Graphite is a rendering engine installed in the font itself).
