A Site Designer (Like Me)

Whoa! I just figured out something weird. Did you know that Firefox can override the way you see a font on a website? I couldn't figure out why my blog's header font looked awesome on Safari and totally bland in Firefox. I figured it was just a weird quirk of the blog site I'm using, so I shrugged it off.

Then I discovered this article, which led me to delve a little deeper into Firefox's preferences. Go to Tools --> Options --> Content. Then under the Fonts & Colors sections, click on Advanced. There should be box about halfway down that says, "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above." Make sure that box is checked! That tells the browser to override it's default font when a site designer (like me) has specifically chosen to use a different font. Once I checked that, my site magically loaded the correct font again! Yeah!!
