On certain websites (specifically the one my school uses) there are no words popping up. Only question marks in boxes. Other websites, like facebook are totally normal. I made sure that the websites were given permissions to pick their own fonts and this did not fix the problem. Thanks

Hello!

So, I was working on a new blog on which I'm using the Rubik font from Google fonts.

Everything was fine for several days, but today, after working for some time on it, the font just got messed up randomly (see attached image).

I added the font on a different, testing site and it shows messed up there as well, so it's not something website related.

Now, the shocking part is that it gets messed up only on Mozilla and only on the Mozilla browser that's on my Desktop PC.

I asked a friend to check it out and I also checked it out on my laptop, and the font is fine on other Mozilla browsers, as well as other browsers.

Other fonts from other websites are fine as well.

What troubleshooting I performed:

- Checked the font with Inspect Element, as it's shown here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Page_Inspector/How_to/Edit_fonts and the font is set up correctly;

- Deleted the whole history since the beginning of time (cookies, cache, everything);

- Closed and opened Firefox again;

- Opened Mozilla in Safe Mode (hardware acceleration is disabled by default in safe mode);

- Restarted my PC;

- Uninstalled Mozilla as it shows here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer. Deleted the profile folder and everything.

- Installed a fresh copy again with no add-ons, no nothing.

Nothing worked. That font is still messed up on Mozilla, on this PC.

It doesn't make any sense, especially since it went nuts randomly without a particular reason.

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem and how to fix it?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi

I've suddenly noticed that my fonts in FireFox are very blocky (no antialias). I'm sure this happened after a restart but not sure why.

I've checked the zoom factor of the page and I can confirm that this is at 100% / Reset

When I went to check my version it updated so this problem exists across 4.6 and 4.5.? (didn't catch the last number before it updated).

I've check windows (all fonts are fine)

I've check another browser (Chrome at the same page.. this is fine).

I'm posting this question/request for help as other posts I've found related do not quite match my issue.

Please find attached a screen shot of the issue (FireFox is to the left and Chrome to the right)

(Upload seems to be caught up, I'll reply to this msg if it doesn't show)

Many thanks J

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.

hello,

since today I notice that all text in firefox (56.0 mac-version) on certain sites appears only in question marks (in suqares). looks like that on sites like mozilla support (busy right now in safari) google.com, my banking site, tmobile, gmail and a lot other ones too. all those sites show totally normal in other brouwsers.

did the following troubleshoot 1) view > text encoding > unicode = OK 2) preferences Font & Color > advanced > checked 'allow pages to choose their own font' = OK

any other suggestions? (:

tried to enclose some screenshots (small jpg and png files) but the upload keeps spinning for ever... never mind.

thanks in advance for any help on the questionmark problem.

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

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

Firefox 60.0.1 seems unable to display some fonts. Most of my e-mails and numerous websites exhibit this problem. I've attached an image of what Firefox displays. I've attempted to change the default font in preferences, but the problem persists. Have others experienced this problem. Have any solutions been discovered?

BTW, if I paste this giberish into a text editor, it displays the text correctly.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hi all, I am seeing this problem since I wiped my computer and installed Windows 10 a couple of days ago. Just to clarify, everything was fine on Windows 8.1, which I was previously using.

I see that fonts are not correctly renderded, there is a lot of aliansing and they're quite thin. They are ugly. The problem is well described in this ticket. https://support.mozilla.org/it/questions/1115938.

I have tried to reset Firefox, run withot plugin, nothing changes. Here you can find values I see in about:support. I use Firefox in Italian, i have translated these values in English. I don't remember what values I had in W8.1, but my suspect is that my GPU (AMD HD7950) is not detected/enabled correctly by Firefox. http://pastebin.com/QEmYBXpp

I noticed: - DirectWrite enabled false - Assert D3D11 device creation failed: 0x887a0004 - Support for H264 HW decoding No; Hardware video decoding disabled or blacklisted

Maybe I should not say this (lol) but Chrome does render fonts properly on my machine.

Can somebody help me please? Thanks

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.
