Sorry I didn't get to this bug sooner.

> For his solution to prevent the crash, I do not have any ideas about it since I do not have any backgrounds about why this function compares the returned font. Nevertheless, to read the comments in the function, we seem to compare the returned family name also for filtering out your case: preventing returning '@Malgun Gothic' when we need a '@Times New Roman' font. So, it is better to ask Jungshik or Darin, who probably know the backgrounds about this code. (I'm adding more fall-back fonts to FontCache::getLastResortFallbackFont() to prevent crashes or assertions at Bug 52422, though.)

Yes, we want to respect CSS font fallback list (specified by web page authors) as much as possible. That is, we don't want Windows GDI font mapper to give us something we didn't ask for by some font mapping magic behind the scene. 

BTW, should the concern by hyatt (comment 12 and bug 48459) be addressed before going further?
