Can't Display Unicode #0CAO -- Part of Emoticon Meme and Thus *Everywhere* -- in Mac Firefox. Help?

I can't get Unicode character 0CAO -- which is a part of a popular emoticon-based meme -- to correctly display in Firefox, despite, as far as I can tell, having the necessary fonts installed on the system. A picture speaks a thousand words, so: These are my Firefox font settings. This is how this page looks in Firefox. This is how it looks in Safari. This page suggested I needed Arial Unicode MS (which appears to already be part of the Mac OS X operating system?). I also installed a Kannada font from here. No go. Any ideas? It's not so much that I really love the meme; moreso that I really detest seeing those Unicode boxes pop up everywhere on God's green Earth when the character fails to display in Firefox.

Ah, The Look of Disapproval.

Oddly it's not working for me, either, and I'm on Safari (5.0). I know I've seen it on Reddit, so I checked my iPhone (3.12) and it displays fine.

Which versions are you using?

Firefox v3.6.4 – where it doesn't work, Safari v4.0.5 – where it works. On Mac OS 10.6.3.

Try installing this font. Read the rest of this thread if that didn't work.

Incidentally, it's U+0CA0 not 0CAO (zero not oh.)

BEAUTIFUL! :-) Thank you, the Kedage font did indeed do the trick perfectly.
