I am now using:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092510 
Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3

The page:


is now rendered correctly. The difficulty is that like a person who 
wakes up and falls asleep and wakes up and falls asleep again, the Indic 
font rendering works and then stops working and then works again. I 
suspect that sometimes the Debian/Ubuntu package does not have the 
correct options compiled in and at other times it does. A little better 
QA during compilation might fix this problem once and for all.

I do not run 8.10 beta and cannot comment on performance using it.

I think you can close this bug for 8.04 because it does not exist at
