How to reduce font weight in Firefox on Mac with CSS?

Tags: css,osx,firefox,fonts

Problem :

Here's my problem: I'm using font-face for the menu of my website, but Firefox on Mac displays it too bold On a PC, everything works well, the font is perfectly sized and looks like it should

Unfortunatly, on Mac, i have to had a CSS hack for Safari (which works), but I didn't find anything similiar in Firefox.

I've tried the "text-shadow hack", i tried using the font-weight property (which pretty much doesn't do anything).

And now, some code!

@font-face {
    font-family: 'KnockoutHTF48FeatherweightRg';
    src: url('font/knockout-htf48-featherweight-webfont.eot');
    src: url('font/knockout-htf48-featherweight-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('font/knockout-htf48-featherweight-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
         url('font/knockout-htf48-featherweight-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('font/knockout-htf48-featherweight-webfont.svg#KnockoutHTF48FeatherweightRg')     format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;


For Safari:

    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

Left if FF on Mac and right is FF on PC (the good version) Screenshot


Solution :

FireFox posted a resolution to this today on their bug forum. It was just finalized today so won't be in use for a while, but we should all put

-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
-moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;

in our body tag to reset this for all browsers. FINALLY!! man, that made my day! This should come out in the next FF release.
