It appears as though Firefox requests web fonts (specifically Google's) in a different manner than other browsers. They fail to load when behind Squid as a result, and I'm trying to isolate why.

Using this page as a reference in various browsers, Firefox noticeably displays it differently.

In the Squid logs, you see hits like this:

TCP_DENIED/407 3292 GET - NONE/- text/html

If you load the same page with IE, you see hits like this:

TCP_DENIED/407 4389 GET - NONE/- text/html

So why the difference and how can we make it play nice with Firefox? This is running Squid 3.1.15, but also tested with a few other 3.1.x versions.

I am facing the same issue. It's a known issue, probably with LOAD_ANONYMOUS requests. Refer to bug: If it gets resolved, the thread should get pinged. – Mayank Nov 22 '11 at 1:41
If you add your comment as an answer, I'll accept it. Seems to make sense since there isn't really a solution and you explained it. – sinping Nov 30 '11 at 18:41
