This isn't a bug I'm reporting unless it could be one, when I start the Tor Browser bundle in Linux; 2.2.35-9 I noticed on the Check Page, some foreign languages are not showing up, I just get boxes instead.

Please see this attached image and if someone can please tell me what languages/fonts I need for those, I'll check...

How does look for you?

Are you using the 64-bit tbb or the 32-bit tbb in linux?

What linux distro?

The characters which failed to render in that screenshot are Chinese ideograms and Japanese kanji.

This is a ‘Tor Browser’ bug, not a ‘Tor bundles/installation’ bug, and it may be a duplicate of #4797.

Did those characters appear correctly in previous versions of TBB?

On my Debian Wheezy system, the ‘CJK Unified Ideographs’ Unicode block is provided by the font ‘WenQuanYi Zen Hei’.

I'm using the 32bit TBB...

Ok I installed the wqy-zenhei-font, I didn't have this installed before and now it looks like it's working ok, please look at the screen shot I'm attaching to confirm...

This is showing for Japanese and Chinese, I don't get why I wouldn't need the sazanami-fonts-ttf for the Japanese characters to show up, even though I understand some of this is borrowed from Chinese, but still.... Hmmm

Our site has changed since then and the language dropdown menu does not show the same issues. Thus, closing as WORKSFORME.
