    My icon fonts, downloaded through icomoon have stopped working only on an external server of ours, which still displays the same website. The errors I am getting are:

    **downloadable font: download failed (**”src of font”**): bad URI or cross-site access not allowed** – FF

    **@font-face failed cross-origin request. Resource access is restricted.** – IE 9&10… 8 works surprisingly.

    Have been combating this error for a few days now, and have tried everything under the sun.

    Thanks guys

    I know FF used to (perhaps still does) have issues with Cross Domain font loading.

    This might be of assistance:

    Since this is IIS, im unsure if I can include that snippet into my web.config…

    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin “*”

    Being on IIS, I’d say the best way is to just make sure that all your files (HTML, CSS, JS, fonts, etc.) are on the exact same domain.

    I recently helped someone with the same issue.

    IIS doesn’t use htaccess? Unless you install a third party thingie like Helicon?

    Not in all versions of IIS

    Correct, IIS does not use htaccess.

    Though, what i did to solve the problem was create a web.config file in my fonts folder and BOOM…
