[Pro] Google Fonts not showing in safari

Has anyone noticed their google fonts not displaying properly in Safari? if you load https://pineriverheritage.org in Chrome, the fonts look fine, but in Safari they do not. This is some kind of new issue and I’m wondering if a Safari update affected something.

Note: I’ve tested this on Safari for Mac, iOS 12 & iOS 13, and the fonts look ugly in all the Safari browsers!

Thanks, Doty

Your fonts are being blocked by browsers that care about mixed-protocol content. Fonts are a form of software, and so, like scripts, they are only allowed to be loaded into a secure protocol (https://) environment if they are requested from a secure URL. Your page requests these fonts from insecure URLs (http://), so the browser refuses to honor that request. You have the exact same error in JavaScript on that page from your attempt to load jQuery from an insecure URL.

You can see this (and more) in your browser’s Develop menu. In Safari, open the Preferences, choose Advanced, and then check the “Show Develop Menu” option. Then you can open up the Web Inspector from the newly-appeared Develop menu. The console tab will show you two warnings and a JavaScript error.

You can fix this by changing the URLs that your page uses to load the fonts and jQuery from http:// to https://.
