Urdu text is not being displayed properly on some websites like this screenshot from facebook:

This problem is independent of the browser as I've tried firefox, chrome and chromium. I am using ubuntu 13.04.

Bug reports are offtopic on this site, and instead should be reported on Launchpad so that developers can see, track and fix these issues. –  Thomas W. Sep 22 '13 at 22:07
    
Can you show an example of a website that displays Urdu correctly? I'm not sure how to identify the problem. –  ændrük Sep 22 '13 at 22:27
    
Install tahoma fonts or install from your windows fonts directory /windows/Fonts Install this chrome extension. [1]: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/font-changer-with-google/… Go to twitter or facebook or any other site and left click the extension. Use custom settings and select tahoma. Click ok and then refresh the page. –  wedu Feb 5 at 15:03
