Hello, this is not a big thing since everything works perfectly anyway (no FOUT)...

...but I noticed that using Modernizr (1.7 or 2, it's the same) and a Google Font (loaded the normal way - ) I see in Firebug that I get an aborted request for the woff file followed by a working one. Without Modernizr I still see two requests, but they both work.

With Modernizr:

Without Modernizr:

I also put a quick test page online:
(Here it doesn't happen ALL of the times, just MOST.)

Is this known? I couldn't find any references.

Hey, Paul.

I'd forgotten about this, let me see...

Yes, it still happens with Firefox, even 6.0.1. And... yes, with Modernizr 2.0.6, too

This seems to be a (not yet filed) Firebug bug, see also: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=668178 / http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/9675
