I'm fairly sure Firefox breaks it just because the font doesn't have ZWSP.  If you use an Arabic font that does have ZWSP I expect Firefox to NOT break shaping.  Quite possibly the same about Safari.

You're right re justification.  At this point I can't make up my mind about the exact intended use of ZWSP anymore.
