What's up with the fonts?

When visiting EF without being logged in, for the past few days fonts have been wonky. Some titles in Verdana, texts in Times New Roman, user names in Times New Roman etc., sometimes fonts change from all Verdana (on the EF main site) to partly/entirely Times New Roman (when clicking on a post).

When logged in this problem seems to disappear.


What's up with that? Is EF in the middle of changing its main fonts?

Re: What's up with the fonts?

I have been getting this too.

When the font changes, if I click on a link I then get an error message.

Any ideas?

I tend to get that error message in relation to logging in/out. Weird. Perhaps it's a bug somewhere?

Re: What's up with the fonts?

When I get the error message the URL is cdn.adspirit.de

Could this be related to some ad display?

Erm... no. I think I should move that to the top of my 'to do' list.

Re: What's up with the fonts?

Entering the ef website address in the address bar indeed lands me on a gaming website. No EF for the next several days

Please help, this is bloody annoying.

Re: What's up with the fonts?

I'm using Firefox and Explorer, both running Adblock plus. No font issues whether logged in or not.

Have you cleared your cookies, run a quick virus check and a quick malware check?

Unfortunately not, but it's this site - for the non-click friendly, it's the first link found in this google search.

When I click on a link/post/username on EF, randomly I go from the EF site to the site linked above.
