      Hi James,

      Thanks for your message. As you suspect, the redirects are causing
      problems in Firefox. If you open up the Web Console (Ctrl+Shift+K or
      something similar depending on your platform) you should see the
      following messages:

      [09:52:51.692] downloadable font: download failed (font-family:
      "googlepage" style:normal weight:normal stretch:normal src index:0): bad

      [09:52:58.767] downloadable font: download failed (font-family:

      If you use wget to fetch the fonts you will see there are a couple of
      redirects taking place. Each point in the chain, if it crosses domains,
      must be configured for cross-site sharing.[1]

      If you search for "web fonts cross domain" you should find a series of
      helpful blog posts describing the issues here and workarounds.

      I hope that helps!

      Brian
