Some websites, notably Github, started using special downloadable fonts and various little pictures are broken when font downloading is disabled.

How to statically install just GitHub's font into Firefox without enabling font downloading from web?

I know you can install a custom CSS in firefox. I don't know how to call it on a per website basis. – Everett Aug 13 '12 at 13:22
It's not about CSS. It's about fonts that those CSS referring. – Vi. Aug 13 '12 at 14:01
And if you install a local CSS you can point to their (github's) font (after you d/l it and install it on your system), or any font you want. I know this because I've done it. Configurations in the local CSS will override the CSS that comes from the website. This would work if you could make it website specific. My local CSS overrides ALL sites I connect to. – Everett Aug 13 '12 at 14:08
+1 for @Everett – I’ve tried it too, but without a local override CSS, and (because of the method Github uses) it doesn’t work, so you really need that. – mirabilos Dec 6 '13 at 11:54
For per-site CSS overrides: @-moz-document domain("") { * {font-family: 'Open Sans' !important;} } – Mica Jan 10 '14 at 15:36

It is possible that the following will work:

Then again, it might not work. If it doesn't, try renaming it to octicons.woff. I haven't tried this: it might do all sorts of disastrous things. I personally can't understand why you block CSS fonts.

(This is installing to Windows, not Firefox.)

Fair enough. Did this fix do the trick? – GKFX Feb 15 '14 at 11:53
