fonts not displaying correctly
Hi a lot of websites I visit are not displaying the font correctly when using firefox. I have set "Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own" already in the preferences. See image below for example. It's happening a lot at the moment . I have updated to latest Firefox and Mac OS is latest. Pages are fine when viewed in Chrome. Help please! Cheers- Vince

Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On 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.
Thanks FredMcD but as stated in my support question, I had already turned on 'Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own'. My contrast color setting is at never. Please see attached image for the problem I have.
You can check in Font Book for font issues like corrupted and duplicate fonts.
You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.
You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
