In attachment 3 samples of webpages with characters not displaying correctly.

The option 'allow pages to choose their own fonts' is checked.

When I go to about:config and set the option gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled to False, I can read the sites but (of course) all fonts are replaced with my fonts.

Is there another way to fix this, please?

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.

After upgrade to 73.0 some fonts are not rendering or cascading to next font-family definition like other browsers.

On my cPanel login page, the body font-family definition is being overridden by an inline style body { font-family: "Gotham SSm A", "Gotham SSm B", "Gotham", Arial; }. … (read more)

On my cPanel login page, the body font-family definition is being overridden by an inline style

body { font-family: "Gotham SSm A", "Gotham SSm B", "Gotham", Arial; }.

"Gotham SSm A", "Gotham SSm B", and "Gotham" are not defined elsewhere inline or any linked style sheet. Every other browser on my Macbook (OSX Catalina) displays the page with the body font as Arial, skipping over the Gotham variants. Firefox seems to be trying to find them or is displaying boxed ? marks in place of missing glyphs. It is a nuisance really, I can just not use Firefox or defeat the inline override for login page because it does not occur on cPanel once logged in. But the glitch is there and I would like to know where it is coming from if possible. Gotham font is present and active on my Macbook as well, but not Gotham SSm A and B (ScreenSmart)...

Safe mode, cache cleaning, history, etc. Browser is up to date Windows is up to date Other browsers seem to display the website (and menu) just fine. Screenshot attached should show extra large menu items following "NEW". https://www.cabelas.ca/

Sorry for being a pain. :)

On certain webpages the text symbols are obscured or replaced by what appears to be a boxed in error code such as the characters F1 on top with 07 on the bottom, encased in a box. I've tried the "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled pref on the about:config" to 'True' fix, with no luck. I've also changed the "security.sandbox.content.level and set its value to 1 (one) (default value is 3 )" and to '0' with no luck.

Bottom line is I'm not clever enough to figure out what the problem really is much less how to properly ask to fix it.

Any help or suggestions so I can actually see, and use, the proper symbols on many web pages is appreciated.

Many thanks

Since a week I can no longer open firefox, without crashing. I have tried it several times in safe mode or to rebuild FF.

Also a clean install did not work r may not import data at the clean install, is all. To do this, I had my firefox profile and also the folder which was just created rebuilding FF. What can I do now to make sure I get it working again?

For some reason, when I got to a site that pix of screen buttons or if I right click and select View page source the content is displayed in some funky font that is barely legible. I have the fonts set the same on my laptop as on my desktop but the laptop has the funky fonts. What's causing this?

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

On a website that lets you customize certain pages, I've noticed that I can't see certain fonts correctly. On a page that I was customizing, I was using a papyrus font. It seems to work fine for others but I don't see that font on my screen. The first image is what you're supposed to see and the second is what I see.

And on some sites, I don't see the fav icon in tabs.

I've tried hard refreshing, restarting the session, restarting my computer, and updating firefox, even though it was already up to date. I feel like I'm missing a plugin or something and I'm not sure what to do. Thanks.
