For about a month Firefox intermittently displays fonts a question marks in boxes. I have used a fix found in one of the discussions on your board but it seems a bit radical. I'm a designer running Suitcase and with a lot of fonts including multi language fonts loaded. Thanks for any suggestions :-) Henry


You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected. You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/View_fonts We have seen cases where a box with all '?' or all 'A' is displayed that might be related to using a Last Resort font that displays all the glyphs with one same character.

You can also try to set this pref to 1 on the about:config page in case there is a problem with the security settings. security.sandbox.content.level = 1

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Thanks Zbynek
