latest FFox supernova blew up reader view

In previous versions of FFx, toggling to Reader view used the same font I'd chosen in Settings / wherever. Now it's something else, in boldface with no distinctions made in original view (italics, not italics, etc). & there doesn't seem to be any way I can control fonts in Reader.

Any suggestions? In plain English, please, I am NOT a programmer or computer professional, just a regular human trying to use this new version that seems to have broken everything I liked about FFx.

Does it still happen in a new profile? An easy way to test a new profile is to install Developer Edition and see if it happens there or refresh your existing profile. Make sure you stay signed out of your sync account when testing.

You can right-click and select "Inspect" to open the built-in Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Fonts tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website. If the Fonts tab is hidden, click the Down arrow at the right end.

Thank you for the suggestion, wanted to try this first as setting up a new profile isn't something i feel comfortable with.

So I selected "Inspect," didn't see the element to highlight. Tried to find the "rules" tab & can't. but i stumbled into the CSS panel, somehow found Style Editor, where "body, sans-serif { font-family" listed some fonts (helvetica etc), none of which are in my FFox font settings, so it seems ...something... is overriding my choices. i deleted those fonts & the Reader view showed the font i wanted.

But I have to go through all that for Every. Single. Article. -- given the frequency i use Reader, that isn't a good option for me.

Is there a way to permanently change the font setting? i took a look at the page link above & my head is spinning. Again, I'm not an IT professional or anything near it. Do I just bite the bullet & spend a couple hours fooling with the instructions - confusing as they are to me - to change the font?

again, i'd like to point out, this is an issue that *supernova broke,* wasn't a problem in previous FFox version which i'm at the moment very tempted to reinstall.

@zeroknight, thank you for the suggestions, but after spending hours getting supernova configured to *what i already had without effort in previous version,* a refresh doesn't sound like what i want. setting up a new profile, ditto, especially since i have no idea what a sync account is. and Developer Edition doesn't sound like something i'd even remotely want to try.

i did say i'm not an IT professional or anything close -- maybe this response will convince you :-)
