I want to replace all fonts on all websites with Roboto Light. I downloaded the Roboto family and installed it on my PC. Now when I use this:

  • {font-family: "Roboto";}

it works fine, but when I use this:

  • {font-family: "Roboto Light";}

it falls back on another font. Why?

Chosen solution

You need to add extra font setting to make Firefox select a specific variant. All Roboto fonts are seen as one family and the correct variant is chosen based on other settings (light might be: font-weight:300; or font-weight:lighter;)
