I don't know whether Arabic, Aramaic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and various South and South-East Asian work well (Devanagari, Bengali, Tibetan, Thai, Lao, etc.).

However, all these alphabets should work without issues:

  • all types of Latin (gv, zh-min-nan, hak, etc.; but not including those with conversion, like Serbian)
  • Georgian (ka, xmf)
  • Armenian (hy)
  • Greek (pnt)
  • Ge'ez (am, ti; T116523)

All these can be enabled now as far as the technical typing ability goes (community approval is a different question).

For Korean, T110654-blocking bugs (and especially T72353 ) are enough to block default, I suspect. FF is not a minor browser.
