How to fix: Firefox uses incorrect fonts on all webpages, regardless of their CSS

If you encounter a Firefox that does not care about your font settings but always uses specific fonts, you can fix that. Usually this should not happen, as it's not a default setting:

  1. Open up the Preferences.
  2. Switch to "Content".
  3. In the "Fonts & Colors" section, click the "Advanced..." button.
  4. Tick "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selection above".
  5. Confirm by pressing "OK".


Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
