What page were you testing with? If the page loads a custom font it may well not matter what the setting in midori is. 

If you test various other pages does it work?

Comment 2 Heiko Adams 2011-08-11 10:08:15 UTC
I've tested http://start.fedoraproject.org/ http://wwww.facebook.com and http://wwww.sueddeutsche.de and all of them still use Sans as Font. So seems that it doesn't work.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2011-08-11 14:49:30 UTC
All of those define their own fonts. 

Try: http://lwn.net/

Comment 4 Heiko Adams 2011-08-11 16:37:12 UTC
Okay, with LWN it works but what's the sense of that option until I can't force midori to ignore the font-settnigs of websites?

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2011-08-11 17:54:15 UTC
Well, it has affect on any site that doesn't use it's own fonts. (I admit, fewer than it used to be). 

There's an upstream request to add a 'always use my fonts' preference I am pretty sure, but I don't know the status of it. You could file an upstream request to make sure it's being looked at, or I can if you like.

It would be nice if you could do it. I don't need another account for one-time-action ;-)

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2011-08-14 20:56:27 UTC
Filed upstream.
