Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140421221237

Steps to reproduce:

1. Loaded a page using custom Fonts (for Icons)
2. Changed the font files.
3. Reloaded the page using Ctrl + F5. All good!
4. Refreshed the page using F5: Firefox displays old fonts.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4: same results.


Actual results:

Firefox used non-existant fonts on a page refresh and the correct fonts on a page reload.


Expected results:

Firefox should have replaced old fonts with the updated ones and not jump back and forth between them.

Possibly related to the font cache, mentioned in bug 931752 comment 9?
