Oh, very interesting. It seems the difference is only in one code point,
in the "cursive" and "fantasy" styles (last two columns):

-U+058F	745,1362	745,1362	699,1362	745,1369	699,1362	699,1362
+U+058F	745,1362	745,1362	699,1362	745,1369	745,1362	745,1362

Could you make screenshots of the two renderings? I will attach mine.
The easy way to make a screenshot is to open the developer toolbar with
Shift+F2, then type
	screenshot [filename] --fullpage
Go to https://people.torproject.org/~dcf/fonttest.html#viewer and enter
"058f" in the box. Select "default" from the dropdown and take a
screenshot. Then select "cursive" and take another.

For me, the "default" glyph is using the font "Noto Sans Armenian" and
the "cursive" glyph is using "Noto Serif Armenian". I found that out by
typing Ctrl+Shift+I, clicking the arrow icon ("Pick an element from the
page"), clicking the big glyph, then selecting the "Fonts" tab.
