with it getting especially bad recently with nytimes.com, to the point
where I stopped visiting it because it would freeze the entire browser for
something like 10 seconds.
I noticed it was getting stuck loading typeface.nytimes.com and I also
noticed another sports site I visit getting stuck on fonts.voxmedia.com
So I goggled around, and found that going into about:config and turning off
the listing for gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled has made Firefox load vastly
Does anyone know if this is just a Firefox problem, or is it some deeper
indication of problems with the fonts on my PC? Things look fine on my PC
in Firefox and Word etc., but to be honest I'm not sure I could tell the
difference between Bodoni and Balloon fonts.
