This happens on Windows 10(JA) with either the 5.5a4_en-US bundle or the 5.5a4_ja bundle.

All the UI elements including the initial configuration dialog box are appear to be sized incorrectly.

The initial configuration box is borderline unusable, it has a vertical scroll bar, and the buttons are likewise vertically huge. I can take more screenshots if needed, but I do not have system with an English version of Windows, nor easy access to anything that isn't Windows 10 at the moment.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help fix this, since having usable bundles is a good thing, even if it is Windows 10...

And this was not happening with 5.5a3, right?

Correct, the old release was fine, even with a modified font whitelist (since I was experimenting with trying to fix our JP font selection).

Is there any update on this bug? It seems like something we need to fix before we can make TB 5.5 the stable release.

Disabling the font whitelisting by clearing font.system.whitelist "resolved" the issue. This is utterly infuriating because with whitelisting disabled, Tor Browser is claiming to be using the fonts that were explcitly added to the whitelist as part of the change that broke this (Localized MS P Mincho/MS P Gothic).

A ha. After poking at it a bit while chatting with arthuredelstein on IRC, adding Yu Gothic UI to the pref fixes the problem. Per the interwebs, the default GUI font on windows has changed a few times on Japanese windows...

  • Windows XP -> MS UI Gothic (Not sure if this needs to be localized, don't have a box with this)
  • Windows Vista/7 -> メイリオ
  • Windows 8/8.1 -> Meiryo UI
  • Windows 10 -> Yu Gothic UI

What a mess.

This is fixed. #17999 is a follow-up ticket dealing with the different default fonts in different Windows versions.
