Firefox 5 some web sites fonts are not work.

I try to visit this sinhala language web site using Firefox 5 latest version. Then that site not properly display (Fonts are not work). Then i again downloaded that web site fonts and install them. But again that web site not properly display. If i visit that web site using "Google Chrome" or "IE" i can view that web site properly. This problem only happen for Firefox 5. Older version Firefox 4 work properly with this site. This is that web site fonts download link -http://www.lankaenews.com/font/sinhala_tamil_fonts.zip

Re: Firefox 5 some web sites fonts are not work.

If I modify the embedded stylesheet and add a line for the local file then it seems to work, but @font-face doesn't seem to work when added to userContent.css and this page reloads constantly.

@font-face {
 font-family: sandaru-n;
 font-style:  normal;
 font-weight: normal;
 src: url(SANDARU0.eot), local(sandaru-n);
}

EDIT:
You can set the pref gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled to false on the about:config page to disable downloadable fonts and make Firefox use a locally installed font.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.
You can use the Filter bar at to top of the about:config page to locate a pref more easily.

I can't understand what your saying. And also i can't register and log-in this web site (https://publishers.kontera.com/) using Firefox. I can login and register that web site using Chrome.

About the login problems:

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

What I wrote about the fonts is that Firefox 5 doesn't use a locally installed font when it is not specified via that @font-face rule.
It works in Firefox 5 with the font installed locally if I remove that @font-face rule entirely or if I add a local(sandaru-n) section, but not with only the eot URL rule for IE.

That trick not work friend. So what's the problem. Is it Firefox bug?

Re: Firefox 5 some web sites fonts are not work.

Do you mean the second part about the fonts or the first part about the logins?

Re: Firefox 5 some web sites fonts are not work.

Hi,

I have a similar problem. Well kind of.

I'm a webdeveloper and I just finished a website that's using some special fonts in the css. (pilotletters-webfont, LetterGothicStd-Slanted, I dont know if they're common fonts or designer made, I didnt actually do the css design)

It works fine in chrome, ie, safari, opera and also firefox versions 3.x and 5 under Linux, Mac and Windows, BUT, people reported to me that it didn't work for them under ff5 (so far, only Mac users reported it)

On my machines, it works, and I can't seem to be able to reproduce the problem... so kind of hard to track...!

Any suggestions?

@ierpe:

Without as link to test it, it is hard to say what is wrong, so please provide a link to the web page.

There are some changes regarding @font-face. Also older font types (Type 1) other that TTF and Open Type WOFF may no longer work.



@U-Tag:

This page is probably a better link for changes that affect developers:

Re: Firefox 5 some web sites fonts are not work.

I face this problem in two different sites. 1st site Fonts not work. 2nd site i can't log-in and register it. (No error show only web page refresh) If i use IE or Chrome i can register that web site and log-in. So that i think this is Firefox 5 problem. No my computer.
