It wouldn't have helped you in that instance - the Firefox bug there was
that we broke the support for the AAT Myanmar font, but that's distinct
from Firefox's use of harfbuzz. (We need to use Core Text, not harfbuzz,
to render the AAT font properly.)
To detect text-shaping issues before they make it to the Firefox
release, it would be most useful if you run Firefox Aurora or even
Nightly builds, so that you're seeing the actual behavior and
configuration that we're planning to ship in an upcoming release. If
bugs are reported during the Nightly or Aurora phase of development,
there's a good chance we can get them fixed -before- the version goes
out in the release channel.
