Tumblr Icomoon Font Icons Not Rendering Properly In Firefox
View gist:11190993


While working on The Giver Movie's Official Tumblr I ran across a problem. It seems that my icomoon font icons failed to render properly in Firefox. The issue is due to the fact that Firefox doesn't allow cross-domain fonts. The traditional solve is to add the following to your .htaccess: Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*".

However, I have no control over the .htaccess due to the fact that my code will be hosted on So, I attempted to upload the font files through Tumblr's static upload page. This also failed because Firefox treats subdomains the same as cross-domains.


Below is my original snippet:

A summary of Nicolas Bevacqua’s post on ES6 Number improvements

ES6 Number improvements

  • use the 0b prefix for binary, and the 0o prefix for octal integer literals
  • Number.isNaN and Number.isFinite are like their global namesakes, except that they don’t coerce the argument to Number
  • Number.parseInt and Number.parseFloat are exactly the same as their global namesakes
  • use Number.isInteger to check if the argument is a Number value that doesn’t have a decimal part
  • use Number.EPSILON to check if the difference between two Number values is negligible (e.g. the difference between 0.1 + 0.2 and 0.3 is negligible)
  • Number.MAX_SAFE_INTEGER and Number.MIN_SAFE_INTEGER are the largest and smallest integers that can be safely and precisely represented in JavaScript
  • use Number.isSafeInteger to check if an integer is within those bounds
