  • There appears to be a Firefox on Windows and Linux bug with CSS font-weight
  • The following Windows (Linux has the bug too) screenshot shows a font-weight bug where Firefox on Windows and Linux is not displaying bold text. How to fix? Change font-weight to 50 from 300. Editing Linux files or modifying Linux files on Windows is NOT OK should be in bold! (this bug was discovered from yesterday's blog post).
