During my audit of Firefox 17-ESR, I should look over the font parsing code and make sure they included Google's "Font Condom". If it's included and enabled, I think we can allow WebFonts by default.

I see the maint-2.4 branch of TBB stops blocking WebFonts, and the FF17 alpha TBB blog post points to this ticket, which is still open. What's the current status? Is it safe to stop blocking WebFonts in upcoming Tails 0.17?

In case it might help: I've git grep'd -i condom on the iceweasel 17 source, and found no occurrence that looked like it was about a font.

Yeah, "font condom" is not exactly a technical term. The code is called the "OpenType Sanitizer" library. It lives at, and it is in the Firefox sourcedir in the gfx/ots directory. It does get built and linked in to Firefox.
