Resolved Font Awesome


Question

Posted · Report post

I'm currently using the Font Awesome Icons (for my social icons) and it appears they don't work in IE8, what about 9 or 10? They seem finicky in Firefox too...anyone else having this same issue?

Looks great in Chrome.

I highly recommend upgrading to IE9 (I can't check to see if they work on this version since I don't have access to IE). I looked up the Font Awesome issue and found this reference: http://stackoverflow...net-explorer-8. The solution posted there might be helpful.

My concern is not about me upgrading browsers, but testing a site that could very well be viewed in that version of IE. Thanks for the reference, I will look into it.

Have you deactivated any of the code relating to font-awesome? I can't see the icons appearing on your site now at all. http://screencast.com/t/WiP4zKvp

The crappy thing about Font Awesome, is that it isn't awesome in IE or Firefox. I've installed a script that improves performance in IE but Firefox just doesn't seem to support them. Ideas?

Hi, I've just read this which might help. Apparently Firefox doesn't allow you to use the font if its hosted in a sub-domain. Please see the link below, this could be the issue.

I did as instructed and added an .htaccess file to the font folder with the recommended code. It appears to have worked...on to the next problem!

Thanks James.
