Chrome Print Preview doesn't load @media only print font-face

Asked by At

I would like a different font-face for print than for screen. Unfortunately Google Chrome Print Preview (works on other browsers) won't load the font-face and won't show the text. But if you try it a second time, the font-face is loaded and then, Google Chrome Print Preview will show the text!

Here is a fiddle on which you can reproduce the problem. (nb: on the fiddle the font url does not exist, but at least the preview should show the text as 'serif').

Is there a better solution than forcing the pre-loading of the print font-face for all @media?

The problems occurs on all versions of Google Chrome <= 53.

I used this code:

@media only print {
    @font-face {
        font-family: "Computer Modern";
        src: url('/fonts/cm/cmunrm.otf');
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;

    body {
        font-family: "Computer Modern", serif;
