Ubuntu: Firefox doesn't render Dravidian scripts (Telugu, Tamil, etc.) in 16.04


I upgraded to 16.04 and all Dravidian pages (in Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu) have become blank rectangles. No problem with the Nagari-based North Indian languages (Hindi, etc.). The other laptop still running Ubuntu 15.10 has no such problem. Any idea what I can do?


Go to System Settings and in Language Support check the mentioned languages

In my case it fixed just after installing indic fonts. You can install that specific package by

sudo apt-get install fonts-indic  

or even shorter

sudo apt install fonts-indic  


Just follow this link How to Set telugu fonts clearly in mozilla firefox

you can add any language
