    I am using a self-hosted web font on my site, and in Chrome it works perfectly.

    In Safari and Firefox, however, it does not load in the navigation menu, and some headers, but works fine in the body.

    I have enclosed the information below including a log-in. Wondering what I need to do to tweak this? Thank you!

    Hi Victoria,

    I think that did it! Duh! Should have tried that first.

    Although it seems like both Safari and Firefox are adding “bold” to the fonts even though I specified that it’s a regular font face with “normal” styling…any thoughts on how to fix that? I realize that’s not a theme issue but I’m not sure what else to try on that front.

    Thanks again!!!



    Hi Tony,

    There are slight differences in how browsers renders fonts, and that is likely what you are seeing. Unless you have added CSS specifying that a specific browser should use the bold font?

    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks for the response! Actually, I am trying to add CSS to the *opposite* effect, to get the navigation menu to *not* appear bold, but it seems like Safari and Firefox are adding pixels to make it look thicker, no matter what I do. In any case, I have decided to design mainly for Chrome because it seems like that is the dominant browser these days.

    Thank you!
