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.

I did the Firefox refresh and now the websites I try to visit have all have question mark boxes instead of the content. I have searched and searched the forums and other topics to try and figure out what the issue is but nothing seems to work. I have seen that others have the same issue but nothing has fixed the problem.

 I have uninstalled and reinstalled, I have restarted my computer, and I have tried changing to safe mode. In my "Finder" box on my Mac, under all files, there are also a lot of error message documents.

Hi,

I'm using Firefox 41.0.1 on Linux Mint.

I've noticed that the browser is showing up wrong Unicode font characters/icons. The attached pictures show what I see in Firefox (wrong foreign characters) and what I see in a different browser on the same platform (right icons, as expected).

So I'm wondering how to correct this behaviour. Also, the option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" is checked.

Thanks in advance!

Firefox replaces SOME fonts with the default one (but handles others just fine)

Hello,

I've been dealing with that problem for some time now: Firefox seems to behave different for different fonts. Or better: on different websites.

There are websites whose fonts look just fine. Plenty of them. But then there are sites on which Firefox seems to replace fonts with the default font (the one set in the preferences). It doesn't necessarily replace all fonts on the website. As you can see on the attached images, Wikipedia's headline font displays correctly but as soon as I change the default font in my preferences, the body font changes accordingly. I've checked the option that enables websites to use their fonts over the default font.

I'd be glad if someone could help me out. Thanks in advance.

On lots of websites text appear as an 'A' in a box (see screenshot - i've blurred some content due to privacy). I've gone through my preferences and checked 'Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above'. When I uncheck this box using my font selections things display fine however when I check it I get this problem. I'm a web developer so I can't override site fonts, I need them to display as intended. I've checked Chrome and Safari on my machine and they are fine so this problem is isolated to FireFox. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode but it made no difference, I went to the config page and changed network and gfx references back to 'reset' and again it doesn't make a difference.

System details: FF = 56.0 (64 bit) OSX = 10.9.5

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

Hi,

I would like to ask you about an issue that i have at my personal business website and it's appearance at mozilla firefox 42 version on my desktop. A few strings appear with line through text decoration and i can't understand the reason. The really strange thing is that the same strings look normally at my laptop's browser.

I attach you some screenshots to check the problem. My website is www.webfish.gr and the problem appears at the following URL's :

- http://www.webfish.gr/i-etaireia/ - http://www.webfish.gr/nea/

Please give me some advice on the issue.

Thanx in advance.

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.

After upgrading Firefox I have a variety of display errors with websites, some worse than others. IE and Chrome do not have these problems. I have tried refreshing Firefox and I have twice deleted it and re-downloaded the program with no improvement. Sometimes the errors disappear after moving the cursor over the problem. I cannot find anything on the Forum which fixes the problem. I am attaching some screen shots to illustrate the problem.
