I use Google fonts on my website and it works fine with Chrome and Microsoft Edge, but has stopped working with Firefox possibly following Windows 10 automatic update. I upgraded to latest Firefox (57.0) but it still doesn't work with the Google fonts. Has anyone else seen this problem and does it warrant further research I wonder?

Version 57 is not the latest release version of Firefox. The current release version is 59.0.2 and can be downloaded here --

Hi Perduta, could a setting or add-on be blocking Firefox from downloading the fonts?

Check the web console for any messages generated while you load your page.

Among extensions, both NoScript and uBlock Origin can block font downloads.
