Why was MathML-fonts created?

Many users that do not have the appropriate mathematical fonts installed complain about the quality of Mozilla's MathML rendering. Although the solution is to install them from the MDN wiki, the procedure is not necessarily easy for everybody and it is somewhat simpler to just install this add-on. Automatic updates will also help people to keep the latest recommended fonts.

This add-on is a response to many bug reports such as
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=233950

What's next for MathML-fonts

The Mozilla MathML Project continues to improve support for mathematical fonts:

When new free mathematical fonts are supported, they will be integrated in the add-on. A possible future feature would be to provide a preference menu to choose the default fonts for mathematics.
