Details

following significant negative feedback about the readability of comments with the fira's mono font, we should backout that change (but continue to use fira for the rest of the UI).
To ssh://gitolite3@git.mozilla.org/webtools/bmo/bugzilla.git
   3e8a6b2..ccd31ef  master -> master

readability feedback includes:
- the "r" is too similar to a dot-less "i"
- * and + are too similar
- the kerning is very weird
- i have to increase my font size to 150% to read comments


i'll chase up these issues with the visual design team; i'd love to see fira-mono re-enabled on bmo at some stage.

Just curious, is there a way to allow users to set their own font instead of system-wide?

Not built in to Bugzilla. There are various Firefox hacks that can be done.

no, but it's possible for us to provide alternative fonts for the skins.

we already do that for dusk, i've filed bug 1039146 for providing an opensans alternative for the mozilla skin.
