Steps to reproduce:

Using an externally hosted webfont version of Helvetica Neue to display both bold and medium weights of the same typeface, in a floated list.


Actual results:

There is an inconsistency in how the font is displayed between mac and windows versions of Firefox. The lighter version of the font appears to align to a higher base line when compared to the bold version of the same font. 

Both have the same size in pixels, height and line-height. The only difference being the font weight. Which has been assigned by a separate font

This is not an issue on the Mac version (v18) of firefox. 


Expected results:

Both fonts aligned to the same baseline.
