 Tor Browser uses a built-in set of font files in order to prevent font
 fingerprinting. If Tor Browser allowed a site to use Arial, then a web
 server could fingerprint you by detecting whether you have the Arial font
 installed or not.

 But, if the fonts look really bad, it's possible we can work together to
 include a font file that looks better.

 For me, the font on that page is [https://www.google.com/get/noto/#naskh-
 arab Noto Naskh Arabic]. Is the the same for you?

 I recategorized your ticket from Webpages/Website to Applications/Tor
 Browser because the former is only about the torproject.org website.
