Thanks, it's literally any webfont http://webfonts.myfonts.com/ the top logo should be in myfonts script logo font. This is only an issue on mac builds
It's unlikely that bugs in FF3.6.x get fixed unless it's a security bug.

Is it OS X 10.7 only?

Webfont support was turned off on the 3.6 branch for OS X 10.7 because OS X 10.7 made the font API we were using crash.

It is not limited to osx10.7, this bug was introduced after 3.6.19, so it has broken a documented feature.

screenshot, ff3.6.22 vs. ff6

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2.22) Gecko/20110902 Firefox/3.6.22

On 10.6, 3.6.22 renders webfonts.myfonts.com just as FF6 does.  Other @font-face sites render just fine.

Jeff, could you include the build id from your machine (enter 'about:' in the url bar) and attach a screenshot showing ff 3.6 vs. ff6?

Shoot, you guys are totally right.  Sorry, I thought the machine used for testing was 10.6, however it is 10.7 the 10.6 machine works fine and is running the older ff release.  My sincere apologies

Will fontface support return to the 3.6 line for new osx or are we our of luck?

You're out of luck, as far as I know.  Restoring font-face support would involve major changes needed to switch to the new font API which are out of scope for the 3.6 branch...
