Can we set Fira Sans & Mono as the default fonts on Bugzilla?
We are trying to get more and more products to use it as its a Mozilla product. Its a complete font and this would also be a good place to dog food it.

Font can be found here:
https://github.com/mozilla/Fira

bmo currently follows the sandstone styleguide at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/styleguide/websites/sandstone/typefaces/ which specifies use of the open-sans typeface.

are there plans to update the styleguide?

I also think that the style guide should use Fira to promote the Mozilla brand. Will file a bug for that.

Note that Fira Mono is currently broken.

And I wondered whether somebody broke my fonts when I got this awful appearance on bugzilla today.
Fuzzy and hard to read on Win XP. I have gfx.font_rendering.cleartype.use_for_downloadable_fonts=false.
Seems to be the first font that looks better with cleartype than without.
the body font is not exactly a good place to "promote the brand". that's why most style guides use more "standard" typefaces, that don't really stand out.
