Steps to reproduce:

  1. Uncheck "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above".
  2. Go to https://www.divergent-desktop.org/blog/2020/10/29/improving-x/

Actual results:

The text on some web sites, like the one above, do not look like the text on most other sites with serif fonts.

Expected results:

The ligatures should be consistent across sites. I don't know about others' use case, but for me the only reason to disable custom fonts is to have a consistent reading experience across all sites.
