Hi! My default font for some sites (for example youtube) looks like in attachment. And it has deafult polish font from different set. I tried reinstalling Roboto, Lato and Opensans. And nothing.

I didnt change anything, it just started to happen one day.

[v56+] Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address box. Under fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. Scroll to the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

Make sure you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the OS settings.

  • We have seen reports that this can be caused by a problem with fonts like Roboto or Helvetica that

you have installed locally and that might be corrupted or are missing some variants. Also, make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts and that you do not block remote (downloadable) fonts.

  • If you use uBlock Origin make sure not to "block remote fonts".

I am not a Polish speaker and the fonts look OK to me. What is wrong with them?
