After upgrade to 73.0 some fonts are not rendering or cascading to next font-family definition like other browsers.

On my cPanel login page, the body font-family definition is being overridden by an inline style

body { font-family: "Gotham SSm A", "Gotham SSm B", "Gotham", Arial; }.

"Gotham SSm A", "Gotham SSm B", and "Gotham" are not defined elsewhere inline or any linked style sheet. Every other browser on my Macbook (OSX Catalina) displays the page with the body font as Arial, skipping over the Gotham variants. Firefox seems to be trying to find them or is displaying boxed ? marks in place of missing glyphs. It is a nuisance really, I can just not use Firefox or defeat the inline override for login page because it does not occur on cPanel once logged in. But the glitch is there and I would like to know where it is coming from if possible. Gotham font is present and active on my Macbook as well, but not Gotham SSm A and B (ScreenSmart)...

Hello,

I have a trouble with font rendering on one specific website - https://www.checkpoint.com.

Text on this site looks quite ugly (see font01.png).

But if I open "Web Developer" -> "Inspector" -> "Fonts" -> "All fonts on page", then I can see the text renderred correctly in the preview field (see font02.png).

So text uses "DIN WXX Regular" font, but I do not understand, why Firefox cannot render it on the web page in the same manner as in the Developer tools?

Any clue how to fix it?

Browser: Firefox 68.2.0esr (64-bit) OS: Debian Bullseye

Thanks Zbynek

Hi all,

On some sites (I think it has something to do possibly with code snippets because these always display incorrectly) Firefox is showing this illegible font as per the screenshot. I've also attached a Chrome screenshot to show how it should be displaying. I have not been able to find a fix online for this. I have done the suggestions of clearing cache, checking font settings etc that I could find in the options, but made no difference. Please could anyone help? It's driving me mad because I can't make out the font at all!

Michael.

In attachment 3 samples of webpages with characters not displaying correctly.

The option 'allow pages to choose their own fonts' is checked.

When I go to about:config and set the option gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled to False, I can read the sites but (of course) all fonts are replaced with my fonts.

Is there another way to fix this, please?

Font appears messed up only on Mozilla, only on one PC

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

MSI GE72 2QF Apache Pro notebook (stock) Windows 10 Pro Firefox 63.0.3

I recently reinstalled Windows 10 and Firefox. Before the reinstall, unchecking this box had an immediate visible effect. Now, as can be seen in the screenshot, it doesn't.

So far I've tried: - "refreshing" Firefox to defaults and unchecking the box again, - going into "about:config" and changing the value of "browser.display.use_document_fonts" to "0"

Neither of these things worked.

On my other two computers, one of which was bought new less than three weeks ago, unchecking the box does what it's supposed to do.

On certain webpages the text symbols are obscured or replaced by what appears to be a boxed in error code such as the characters F1 on top with 07 on the bottom, encased in a box. I've tried the "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled pref on the about:config" to 'True' fix, with no luck. I've also changed the "security.sandbox.content.level and set its value to 1 (one) (default value is 3 )" and to '0' with no luck.

Bottom line is I'm not clever enough to figure out what the problem really is much less how to properly ask to fix it.

Any help or suggestions so I can actually see, and use, the proper symbols on many web pages is appreciated.

Many thanks

For about a month Firefox intermittently displays fonts a question marks in boxes. I have used a fix found in one of the discussions on your board but it seems a bit radical. I'm a designer running Suitcase and with a lot of fonts including multi language fonts loaded. Thanks for any suggestions :-) Henry


You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected. You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/View_fonts We have seen cases where a box with all '?' or all 'A' is displayed that might be related to using a Last Resort font that displays all the glyphs with one same character.

You can also try to set this pref to 1 on the about:config page in case there is a problem with the security settings. security.sandbox.content.level = 1

Firefox 60.0.1 seems unable to display some fonts. Most of my e-mails and numerous websites exhibit this problem. I've attached an image of what Firefox displays. I've attempted to change the default font in preferences, but the problem persists. Have others experienced this problem. Have any solutions been discovered?

BTW, if I paste this giberish into a text editor, it displays the text correctly.

Thanks for your consideration.

Gibberish appearing in AOL & Yahoo email, not in gmail. Started after FFox 60 update. Does not appear in other browsers. Did not appear in FFox before 60. Have not updated or otherwise changed any hardware or software recently before or after FFox automatically updated itself couple days ago. Images are attached. Couple years back this was happening in Safari and Chrome but not FFox. That is why I switched to FFox. Since later upgrades, Safari & Chrome no longer display gibberish. All forums I went to had no answers not even tech support. So I stayed with FFox. Don't care to go back. Has always performed smoothly. But if this new glitch isn't fixed very shortly, I'll go back to them. Going forward with new upgrade only to go backward with text displays. Any suggestions or solutions are welcome... thanks much
