We plan to have a section on ALReq about which set of numerals should be
used for different locales using Arabic script, but for now, I'd recommend
relying on what's in CLDR:

ps (arabext):
http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/trunk/common/main/ps.xml#L775
fa (inherited to fa-af) (arabext):
http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/trunk/common/main/fa.xml#L5170

The discrepancies you see in different browsers might be simply bugs or
some intended overrides.
