Comment (by sigma4111):

 Why you do not perform this by yourself ?

 Any how, I did this using regular Firefox with default setting (not set on
 "Arial" by default, & allow sites to select it's owen fonts. Take result:
 "Arial" (or "Arial Bold" or "Arial italic") are the fonts for all contents
 that I tested. Only one exception is head of site which is both "George
 bold" + "Time new Roman bold".

 In this case how can I help further ? If "Arial" not free to be used in
 Tor browser, what we can do ?

 By the way, what about "Time new Roman" ? Is it also not free ?

 Please notice that regarding head of site, English part of title appear
 correct in Tor while Arabic part of title not appearing correctly -
 regarding font type.
