See https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=242238. By the way, does anyone know when Firefox updated to the 6.3 version of the UBA? I want to update https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode-Bidi-Algorithmus accordingly.
@Schnark that seems to be https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=922963 (which funny enough they seem to have forgotten to close).
