#280567 has been closed on Friday. Hence Mozilla should be able to
display MathML, if all suggested packages are installed.
My suggestion is now to close that bug collection, as the submitter
already agreed, that latex-xft-fonts is sufficient for his needs.
Further I'll try to summarize the work done in #225004 (this bug) and
open another one using this information (preliminary patch, TODO list
etc.). Probably I won't have time to work on this any more and I see
there other tasks with a higher priority.
Expecting your protests,
