    Firefox doesn't display italic text under GNOME 3

    I am posting this under "Desktop Environments" because this does not occur under Unity, nor under KDE (tested with Kubuntu live-CD).

    I run Firefox 4.0.1 on Ubuntu 11.04, having installed GNOME 3 via PPA. The following HTML file is not displayed correctly in Firefox:

    Code:
    <html>
      <body>
        <p>This is <em>italic text</em>.</p>
      </body>
    </html>
    Firefox displays this file as:

    This is .
    Oddly enough, italic text works just fine here on this forum. It appears to be a font issue.

    As it turns out, the DejaVu fonts were not properly installed: I had only ttf-dejavu-core, not ttf-dejavu-extra. The following installs both packages and fixes the problem:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove ttf-dejavu-core
    sudo apt-get install ttf-dejavu
