Windows 7: Weird issue with wrong fonts displaying on a certain website

Could this be due to hardware acceleration ?

Hardware acceleration is disabled in my Firefox, so that isn't the problem unfortunately. When I enable hardware acceleration in Firefox, text becomes almost unreadable. I have no idea why that happens either.

Actually, here's something weird - I tried enabling hardware acceleration, since it's usually off, and the site displays fine with it enabled. But, text in general on most sites looks atrocious. I have no idea why Buzzfeed acts like this for me, but I can't leave hardware acceleration on because text is pretty much unreadable if I do that. If I disable it, the site is broken again.

Any ideas why turning that on fixes Buzzfeed, or why enabling it causes text to look so bad in Firefox?

Do you have problems on any other websites?

Also does it happen in any other browsers ?

Where exactly did you download the font from = the site asking for it ?
Exact name of it,
Is it listed at dafonts.com ?
rock - Search - dafont.com

It's probably a setting in the game :/

Nope - no other site that I have encountered has a font issue like this. But I'm wondering what's wrong with my Firefox (or fonts) for this to be happening.

The font came with a pinball table - I use Virtual Pinball sometimes (VPForums.org - The Virtual Pinball Forums), and each table includes the fonts necessary for the pinball table to display properly. One table at some point came with rockfont, if I'm remembering correctly. Since this issue, I have uninstalled it and downloaded the font from another source and installed it again - the same thing happens.

But - as I've mentioned earlier in this thread - if i uninstall rockfont, then the site just displays another incorrect font instead (as shown in my third screenshot on the first page).

I still can't solve this issue.

Here's a screenshot I took in Firefox just 5 minutes ago. I opened up Firefox, went stright to Buzzfeed, and here's how it looked:



3 minutes later, I refreshed the page, and here's how it looks now:



This makes no sense to me. What is going on with the fonts, and why is this the only site that this happens to?

See if you've got font settings available that let you choose display fonts and override whatever fonts the website wants to display.

Not sure if it's exactly the same options in Firefox as I use Cyberfox.

I also had a similar problem to yours when using Opera. A full removal of Opera followed by a reboot and then a fresh install of Opera fixed it. You might want to do the same for Firefox.

FF v35.0.1 Reset Error (but loading page fine)

You might also want to try cleaning your FF cache on browser exit:

I actually use ccleaner.

I don't want to override the fonts on all sites though. If I override fonts in Firefox, won't it do that for all web pages?

EDIT: Just tried it - it fixes Buzzfeed but now lots of other sites don't look right because of my forced fonts instead of the webpage choosing how it should look. So that's not a great option for me.
