Support » Theme: StrapVert » Social Icons don't show up in Firefox

  • Resolved JosVanDerBlij


    Hello! I’m working on a website of a friend of mine:

    I have a problem with the social icons in the top right corner (in this case Facebook and Twitter).
    They don’t show up in Firefox (version 28.0).
    They do appear correctly in Chrome and IE.
    I couldn’t find a solution for this elsewhere, so may be you could help me with this. Many thanks in advance; greetz from Holland!

    Hello Jos,

    Thank you for using StrapVert.

    In your child theme’s style.css you have the following chunk of code which is confusing the browser.

    @font-face {
    	font-family: 'Genericons';
    	src: url('../font/genericons-regular-webfont.eot');
    	src: url('../font/genericons-regular-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
    	url('../font/genericons-regular-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
    	url('../font/genericons-regular-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
    	url('../font/genericons-regular-webfont.svg#genericonsregular') format('svg');
    	font-weight: normal;
    	font-style: normal;

    Basically what that code is telling the browser is to look in the themes folder for a folder named “font” from where it should pull the content from – ofcours the font folder does not exist in that location.

    The solution is to remove that chunk of code from the child theme’s style.css and let the browser use the parent theme’s location instead.

    Hope that helps resolve the issue.


    Great Zulf!
    Your solution works perfectly.
    Thanks for your help!
