CSS not loading, Firebug states ‘Aborted’

Had some CSS that worked in Chrome, but not Firefox or Opera. Firebug reported this:

Aborted CSS

 

 

 

 
Turns out, that my media atributes were incorrect,

media="screen print"

will not work in FF and Opera, but

media="screen, print"

does work

However, if this does not fix your problem, or you are not using media selectors, then it will probably be due to an extension to your Firefox browser. I have heard the Foxyproxy and FireQuery cause this sometimes. Best bet is to remove any extensions you’re not using. If you’re still getting it, then it’ll be down to you to decide if you want to use the extension or get rid of the errors.

Installing Tahoma font in Ubuntu

The stylesheet of our intranet is primarily Tahoma, and Firefox on Ubuntu doesn’t look good.

To install the Microsoft Core Fonts package in Ubuntu, run the following in your terminal:

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

And then this should go away and get them. Lovely.

NB, if this doesn’t take immediate effect, you can rebuild the font cache by running

sudo fc-cache -fv

Now, the Tahoma font is excluded these days from this package, so you’ll need to install that one manually, by following the instructions found here
