Description of problem:
It looks like changing to font setting doesn't have any effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Midori
2. change default font i.e. to serif
3. restart midori
midori still uses Sans as default font
midori should use serif as default font
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?
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.
All of those define their own fonts.
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?
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 ;-)
I proposed a patch, which solves his issue to upstream (https://bugs.launchpad.net/midori/+bug/826441)
Fixed in upstream.
