Page font is Comic Sans, but Firefox uses Times New Roman, IE displays correctly
. Use My Fonts is unchecked .
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 The page font is Comic Sans, but Firefox uses Times New Roman. IE displays the page correctly. In Firefox, Use My Fonts is unchecked, and the other default values are unchanged in the Fonts and Colors dialog. This is a new installation a couple of days ago. I installed the latest build of Mozilla just now, without changing the display. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open the above page with Firefox. 2.Note the page is rendered in Times New Roman. 3.Open the page in IE and see the page with the correct font, Comic Sans. Actual Results: Firefox apparently used "My Fonts" instead of the page font. Expected Results: Used the page font. I don't know what ohter settings could affect this.
The basefont element that that page uses is deprecated and no longer supported. CSS is the way to go. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 3875 ***
