Good afternoon.

SM 2.38, 2.39 — default settings, no extensions, no plugins.
Switch browser.display.use _document_fonts;0 and restart.

1. on https://www.browserleaks.com/fonts can see five fonts.

2. on http://portableapps.com/apps and some other sites at the same time uses the font serif and sans serif.

3. When using userChrome.css, ignored #urlbar {font-family: Consolas! important}, and in the address bar uses the font specified in the Appearance-> Fonts-> Proportional (e.g.: Western-> Proportional: Serif-> Serif: Times New Roman. In the address bar will be Times New Roman).

In console only "UnknownError".
But in all, 2.21, 2.35 was OK. Can I change any file in omni.ja that fix it?

UPD: Updated the drivers, nothing has changed. On http://fingerprint.pet-portal.eu/?menu=1#start_test can see seven fonts.

You've got a space in there, should be, browser.display.use_document_fonts.

Oh, that's probably your issue.
When I set the Pref to 0, browserleaks shows '0 Fonts Detected'.


(And if I disable Flash, those fonts too are gone, 'Flash Player does not exist'.)

Just a note about this setting: many websites are now using font characters for icons. So if you disable fonts, these websites will not correctly show icons, which may make it difficult to use certain features or in-site navigation.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

@therube
Sorry, space was superfluous. Removed.

> Oh, that's probably your issue.
I also suspect that it is only my problem. I asked in another forum - nobody else confirmed.
I just wanted to see if i can try to fix it the replacement of files in omni.ja from earlier versions.
> And if I disable Flash...
Switch plugin.scan.plid.all; false - nothing has changed. In any case, Flash should not affect the font-family in the address bar.

This is me not afraid, I'm used to:
browser.display.use_document_fonts;0
gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled;false
gfx.downloadable_fonts.woff2.enabled;false
noscript.forbidFonts;true
NS ABE:
Site fonts.*
Deny

Can I change any file in omni.ja

I don't think you can do that, any longer (used to be able to), or at least without much difficulty?


And have you tried that Pref in a new, clean Profile to make sure no other extensions/settings are affecting what you're seeing?

Repackage omni I can.
> And have you tried...
Yes. As I wrote in the first message "default settings, no extensions, no plugins". I used SM 2.38 portable, 2.39 portable. Switched only a single configuration: browser ‹…› fonts;0

There was another person with the same symptoms. Problem with address bar and font enumeration was solved by using font.blacklist.underline_offset. It remains to deal with serif fonts instead of sans-serif on some sites.
