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.
Every time Firefox opened
== Open certain websites with css font-family:"helvetica neue" in the stylesheets
