After upgrade to tt-rss-g20181226,1 the web interface is broken.
While functionality seems to be ok, there are missing web elements.
See attached screenshots.

Sorry, I cannot see such a regression on my site.

- Which browser do you use?

- Have you enabled any add_on or some theme?

- Any interesting messages in /var/log/httpd-* ?

There is a support page for Tiny Tiny RSS, located at
and I have not found such a problem...

Waiting for more details.

The problem is caused when in Firefox "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" is disabled. This can easily be reproduced.

The new tt-rss version obviously makes use of such instead of a less "smart" solution. This is a problem for those who need this feature to be disabled for a good reason.

Just enabling such fonts is no workaround, as that would allow 3rd party fonts generally.

A patch would be using png icons instead of using a font.

(In reply to p5B2E9A8F from comment #3)

OK, I see! Thanks for the follow-up.

But this is not a problem caused by this port or FreeBSD: it won't be solved by a local patch, but by a modification of the upstream code - if they agree.

So I suggest that you report this problem to the Tiny Tiny RSS developer.
