The new TBA is using wrong fonts on sites, and some of internal pages like "server not found" or about:tor page.

Affected versions:

  • Tor Browser for Android
  • Tor Browser for Android alpha

Both from Google Play and both reports as 60.7.0esr in about:version and 60.7.0 in Google Play.

Affected devices and firmware:

  • Sony Xperia X Performance (Stock Sony 41.3.A.2.107, Android 8.0). I also tried TBA right after full phone reset - everything the same
  • Samsung Galaxy A70 (Don't know the exact firmware build, but it's stock Samsung Android 9.0) - things are better, but still affected. For example, about:tor page shows latin characters in Courier New and some other sites too.

Not affected devices and firmware that I tested:

  • Sony Xperia SP (Stock Sony Android 4.3) - not affected
  • Sony Xperia J (Stock Sony 11.2.A.0.31, Android 4.1) - not affected

Default Firefox 67.0.2 is not affected.
Orfox not affected.
