Firefox 4.0b1 and b2 rendering incorrect weight of some fonts

The first thing I had noticed when I upgraded from FF 3.6 to 4 beta 1 was that Firefox was incorrectly rendering fonts as bold. After some digging I found out that it was the font-family:"helvetica neue" line in the css file that was causing the ugly bolded font (black weight, actually). After editing the css to "Helvetica 55 Roman", the font displays okay.

Example site: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/?browse=featured The thing happens in the very mozilla addons site.

Also have noticed that the same bug occurs on different fonts, where the font name in css is specified in alternative namings, as in "나눔 고딕" for NanumGothic (korean font).

The bug didn't seem to have fixed in beta 2, nor could I find any other thread/document on the web with the same problem. I doubt it's my own problem, since it worked just fine in older versions and I have the very same font files installed since the start.

I've updated to 3.6.8 but many times a day I receive the error that adobe flash plugin has crashed. I've checked for flash updates and have the current available. This occurs when I open firefox, browsing the net, using google, viewing facebook, viewing hotmail, viewing firefox website - basically at any time firefox is opened. Doesn't seem to matter what I am viewing.

Note: while writing this I received the error twice. And any attemtp to report the issue causes this error and complete lock up of firefox.

Keep up your good work :)

When I loaded the i-tunes programme it asked for a link programme to open it. I did not realise that Mozilla was a programme in the box and I had pressed enter before I could stop myself. Ever since, thousands of tabs open at the top of the Mozilla page corresponding to each of my tunes. I have taken i-tunes off but if I try to reload the programme the same thing happens. I need to get rid of this link but don't know how.

I went into Firefox and saved the setting: "Firefox will remember my tabs and windows from last time." But I also told Firefox to not save my history, now whenever I close it and reopen it, it takes me to one tab, Google. When I had 6 tabs opened when I closed it, do tabs count as history?

Mozilla displays html code in stead of the correct page. I checked the content-type in the header, it is text/plain. But inside the html file the content-type is mentioned as text/html in the meta tag. Is there any way to force content-type to mozilla to use text/html instead of reading from the response header.
