Steps to reproduce

If you have two separate CSS @font-face declaration blocks for the Same Font then EDGE reports a console error after only considering the first block. Then goes on to find a successful match from the second CSS block, but the error was already thrown.

All other browsers handle this successfully.

Two separate @font-face block declarations are required for the Same Font to overcome the IE6-8 font-face bug, where the first block just contains an EOT file, and the second block contains Data URI fonts.

    • The common pattern we see on the web is specifying two src in the same rule, e.g. in your case:


      @font-face {
        font-family: VideoJS;
        src: url(“…/font/2.0.0/VideoJS.eot?#iefix”) format(“eot”); }
        src: /* woff, etc. */
