Incorrect interface font used in Fedora 23 when "Open Sans" is selected
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build ID: 20160126084239 Steps to reproduce: 1) Installed Fedora 23 in a VM 2) Installed Open Sans font 3) In gnome-tweak-tool, I changed the interface font to Open Sans 4) I opened the Firefox installed by default and it is correct 5) Upgraded firefox to 44 (both from the repo, and manually from mozilla.org) 6) I opened Firefox and was confronted with the comfortaa font instead of Open Sans Actual results: The interface font was set to Comfortaa Expected results: The interface font should have been Open Sans
I have also submitted the bug to Red Hat as I cannot currently be sure if the bug is specifically in Firefox, or if it is in Fedora. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1303585
Can you find a regression window using mozregression (http://mozilla.github.io/mozregression/)?
Found it, though it appears to be considerably earlier than I would have expected, seeing as it didn't appear in Fedora until Firefox 44. 3:13.76 LOG: MainThread Bisector INFO Last good revision: 3cfde06d952aafa82f9ba248e1b5493f2aa5900e 3:13.76 LOG: MainThread Bisector INFO First bad revision: d6d25651b082b10c8bffea72e4fe5136e04c7da1 3:13.76 LOG: MainThread Bisector INFO Pushlog: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=3cfde06d952aafa82f9ba248e1b5493f2aa5900e&tochange=d6d25651b082b10c8bffea72e4fe5136e04c7da1 3:14.67 LOG: MainThread main INFO Looks like the following bug has the changes which introduced the regression: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1056479
Possibly similar to bug 1245811, where it appears that fontconfig alias entries with the <prefer> type are causing the new linux fontlist code to fail to find the intended font family?
That looks to be correct. After renaming /etc/fonts/conf.d/60-open-sans.conf to /etc/fonts/conf.d/60-open-sans.conf.bak, reloading Firefox correctly showed open sans. The contents of the file are as below, and it looks like it's picking up on the <prefer>sans-serif</prefer> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "../fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <alias> <family>Open Sans</family> <prefer> <family>sans-serif</family> </prefer> </alias> <alias> <family>sans-serif</family> <default> <family>Open Sans</family> </default> </alias> </fontconfig> I am happy for you to close this bug, and I will add myself to the watch list of the other.

FWIW, that makes sense; although the code landed earlier, it wasn't turned on by default on the release channel until FF44 (in bug 1180560).
