--- Comment #29 from Nemo <federicol...@tiscali.it> ---
This is a frequent question but admittedly I can't find it in FAQ:

(In reply to comment #28)
> Couldn't the ULS team also use JavaScript to query client systems for their
> font lists [...]

No, not really. Asking font lists is a known privacy-invading practice and the
team said it's being increasingly restricted by browsers; moreover, it's not
even reliable.

However, all the comments above are superseded by the tofu detection mechanism,
see bug 56292 comment 10 and please continue there. Up to date information is
being collected by the team in
