This has bugged me for a while, but on many pages viewed with Firefox on Ubuntu (but not on Windows or OSX) any
é (e with an acute accent) is replaced by a
й (the Cyrillic Short I). There are probably other examples, but this is the one I encounter all the time.
Why is this, and is there anything I can do to get Firefox to display the characters properly?
A screenshot that should read résumé:
Here's an example of a page where this happens: http://www.theonion.com/articles/company-immediately-calls-job-applicant-upon-seein,31669/
Interestingly, the title displays fine. Looking at the page source the characters that display correctly are simply
é while those that do not are written as
é (I think).
