TIL: Fira Sans font considered invisible.


…well, some versions of it. On some systems. Sometimes.

Apparently the version from Google Web Fonts that I’ve been using until today is not rendered properly on some versions of some Linux distributions. Apparently the problem is known and the temporary fix is to not use Google Web Fonts as a source for this font.

…it would be nice if debugging the issue wouldn’t have taken a combined one man-hour of two reasonably knowledgeable people.

Reproducible results. Computing. Does not compute.
