Does Suitcase conflict with browsers? I see [A][A][A] a lot


Hi There,

I’m running Suitcase Fusion 16.2.0 (591675) and have noticed this issue for well over year now.

When webfonts are used on a website, this text is sometimes displayed as [A][A][A][A][A] - see attached for a Screenshot of a YouTube clip viewed in Safari 7.0.3 this monring.

I used to see this a lot in Chrome on github.com and when I contacted them, they asked if I was running Suitcase.

Does anyone know if this is a Suitcase issue and/or how to fix it?

Image won’t attach from Dropbox for some reason so here’s a link:




It’s not specific to Suitcase, but that behavior can be caused by a font conflict. In Safari you should be able to right-click on the element displaying the [A] and choose “Inspect Element” from the context menu. After verifying you have the right element selected, click on Styles>Computed (right hand side of the inspector). Look for the font-family attribute.

Your conflict should be with one of the fonts listed.

This behavior can occur if you have the same font activated twice (different file names, same font name, I believe).

Good luck.
