Firefox, You’ve Done It Again

The Problem

After upgrading to Firefox 24, some fonts weren’t displaying correctly in one of my own websites. I was referencing a Google fonts URL in my CSS, because they’re so pretty. And free. And apparently a security risk, according to the new Firefox default settings.

The Fix

1. Type about:config in the address bar.

2. Search for “security.mixed_content.block_active_content”, set to false.

For the love of G-d, Firefox devs, please stop trying to protect us from ourselves. It’s ok. We know what we’re doing.
