I'm on top of Ubuntu 13.04, and when Firefox (and/or Chrome) renders a bootstrap icon, the result is the one I show on the screenshot.

I don't find any info about this issue, anyone has a clue about what's happening?

What locale are you using? – Brandon Bertelsen Apr 26 '13 at 0:17
es_ES. I've followed this steps to reset it (it was perfectly set before, but anyway...). No luck. – user1653446 Apr 26 '13 at 8:28
Usually I would think this is a locale issue, but I'm not sure - can you see the icons on ? – Brandon Bertelsen Apr 27 '13 at 1:40
I do, no problem. – user1653446 Apr 27 '13 at 10:01

As i have this issue for a long time .. :)

The issue that in my Firefox settings (Content-> Advanced) .. I didn't check this option (Allow pages to use their own fonts,instead of my selection above) ..

So when rendering with my font .. I lost the icons ..

I hope that your issue is the same as mine .. to be solved with this solution .. :)
