That would be the default bookmarks files. Reassigning to Humdinger.

IIRC it's a missing feature in Haiku's font handling (wrt webfonts?).

You need to install the FontAwesome font. The problem is app_server does not provide any API for an application to load a font. Modern web pages try to do that, but we can't implement it in webkit without app_server support (well, we could download and install the fonts in non-packaged without asking the user, but...).

Also, while experimenting with this I found that some fonts would crash app_server. So until this is fixed it is not a very good idea to support installing random fonts from webpages automatically.

Replying to PulkoMandy:

You need to install the FontAwesome font.

That's not all there is. The FontAwesome provides e.g. the infamous hamburger icon and the search icon at the top right. Other icons used for the comment formatting come from somewhere else (a webfont, ignored by Web+?)

See these shots of QupZilla and Web+:

QupZilla:

icons: no you see'em

Web+:

icons: no you don't

Nevertheless, shouldn't we at least add the FontAwesome package to the image? It's under 100 KiB.
