This discuss forum's FontAwesome is broken


#1

For me on Chrome 38 and Firefox 32, every item that uses font-based icon is broken. That leads to me just seeing a whole bunch of squares and no icons.

Both browsers do not load: https://discourse-cdn-sjc1.com/business5/assets/fontawesome-webfont-837cb6609172c8e3f4240219b93dcdc7.ttf?http://discuss.emberjs.com&1&v=4.0.4

When I look at what is happening in Chrome’s developer tools Network tab, it says that the request was cancelled.

This is usually due to a plugin interfering – The “HTTPS everywhere” plugin is known to cause this problem, for example.

I would check your plugins and try running without any plugins, or see if any proxy between you and the site is blocking the request.

@jatwood, the HTTPS everywhere plugin was causing the issue. Thank you.


#4

Is there a fix aside from disabling HTTPS for the site? Is this just because the fonts aren’t available over HTTPS?


#5

It’s a bug in HTTPS Anywhere, it has nothing to do with actual https.
