I downloaded an external font and I'm using it for my webpage. My code is this:

font-family: "MyFont";
src: url('MyFont.eot');
src: url('MyFont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
url('MyFont.woff2') format('woff2'),
url('MyFont.woff') format('woff'),
url('MyFont.ttf') format('truetype');
} body{
font-family: "MyFont";

The font is properly working when I go and check my webpage on localhost. However, I have this webpage also on tor, and when I go and try to access this webpage on tor, the font isn't loading up. Everything is in plain, ordinary text. Is there anything I need to configure, or can tor not load up the fonts for some reason?

>or can tor not load up the fonts for some reason

The tor browser can load fonts, you can test it here on def4 for example: http://acmsrfsbsogtuhvk.onion/bbx/

Could it be that the url needs to be expressed differently ? You do:

src: url('MyFont.eot');

Maybe it must be:

src: url('/fonts/MyFont.eot');

(Provided that the font files are in /fonts/)

Not sure that you need to give a source anyway, on def4 I just do:

font-family:'Fira Mono', monospace;

The font libs are in /fonts.
