Designed to integrate with the character of the Mozilla FirefoxOS, the Fira typefaces also aim to cover the legibility needs for a large range of handsets varying in screen quality and rendering. The Fira font family comes in 3 widths, all accompanied by italic styles. The package also includes a Mono Spaced variant. This project is led by Carrois, a type foundry based in Berlin. To contribute, see Github.

FIRA SANS font weights
Note on thin weight fractional coordinates
All weights below “Thin” use fractional coordinates which is an optical decision. Rendering engines might not be able to deal with that correctly. As for that, these weights should be seen as an experiment by now. If you notice any problems in smaller sizes please consider to use weights from Thin.
FIRA MONO font weights
This will be the last version of Fira Sans. Development will continue with FiraGO. See FiraGO for plenty of new scripts (Arabic, Hebrew, Devanagari, Thai, Georgian) and manual TT hinting.
