- anyone have a problem with this? I can't get the CSS attribute font-face to work for downloadable fonts. @font-face {

     font-family: minecraft;
     src: url("../files/minecraft.ttf");

}

What is the sanitizer and how can I configure it to accept the downloaded font?

Chosen solution

You get this error if you run out of memory when loading the fontfile or if there is something wrong with the layout (contents) of the fontfile. This is a protection against bad or malicious font files. It is probably possible to disable the sanitizer by setting the pref gfx.downloadable_fonts.sanitize to false in about:config but then you are no longer protected. Use at your own risk. Do not blame Mozilla if you are infected with malware.

You can also verify the fonts if it is your own website.

Thanks cor-el; I will give this a try, so far it's looking good - still gotta plug it in to my CSS to see if it will work.

This is for my college class so thanks for the speedy reply - I lost power over the last week with Ice storms and trees falling all around me - so please forgive the lateness of the reply.
