--- Comment #6 from Amir E. Aharoni <amir.ahar...@mail.huji.ac.il> ---
This shouldn't happen any longer for two reasons:

1. If you have a local Ethiopic font on your machine, it should be used by
default and not replaced with a web font, because we added a "tofu detection"
feature (see
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Universal_Language_Selector/WebFonts ). For
users who don't have any Ethiopic on their machines, an ugly font is better
than squares. According to our metrics (I'll publish precise numbers next week)
Ethiopic fonts are among the least commonly supported.

2. At this point Webfonts are disabled by default, so this shouldn't happen in
any language unless you enable it from the gear icon. They maybe re-enabled by
default in the future.

Also, I studied this script and I believe that the Abyssinica font is very
good, but that's a matter for separate discussion.

And as for untranslated messages appearing with an "ugly" English font - the
best solution for that is to translate them, but tofu detection prevents that
anyway.

So this is basically a WONTFIX, because the problems are supposed to be
addressed. If something happens that still bothers you, please reopen with an
explanation.
