Firefox 33 does not display specified fonts

Dear all,

The problem is with firefox 33. The previous version 29 didn't show this problem. I need to show a barcode in a page. I have the necessary font which correctly displays the barcode when installed. Presently IE and Firefox 29 display it properly. No sooner had I upgraded to Firefox 33 it shows only the numbers even inspite of checking the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts." in Fonts options.

Please help.

PS: I am attaching the html file as well as the font.

I don't have FF installed, but you could give this a try.
In the Address bar type: about:config (Accept the, I'll be careful)
Search for “pdfjs.disable” right click on it and select toggle. Value field should be True now.
Retry the barcode page.
Nope. Doesn't work. pdfjs.disabled has been turned true. Same problem - only numbers in stead of barcode. IE shows alright still.

Thanks for your help though.
Scroll down to the bottom and there are links to older versions of FF

Have you tried FF 31ESR? I was running the portable version to test it out. You could try that and see if it displays your barcodes properly.
I don't want to download files from strangers, but I'm curious about where the files came from. I would think if a website doesn't work with the latest version of Firefox, you would want to talk to the person who runs the site.
Older versions of Firefox are ok. 29 & 30 are working. I have checked.

@TonyB25, you need not download unless you want to. As for website, it is not exactly one, it is an application page that I am talking about. If you're serious about solving the problem, I can paste the code here.

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"></head>
<body style="margin:0.01in 0.01in 0.01in 0.01in; width:3in;height:2in;position:absolute;" onload="self.print()">
<table height="25%"><tbody><tr><td style=" font-weight: bold;" align="left">Regd : 14-483209&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Date :01-NOV-14</td></tr>
<tr><td style=" font-weight: bold;" align="left">Name : Meena Chamoli</td></tr><tr><td colspan="2" ;="" align="left">
<b>Age :</b>44&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<b>Category :</b>Female</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2" style="font-weight: bold;">Dr. K. Tyagi &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Room:38</td></tr></tbody></table>
<table height="25%"><tbody>
<tr><td style="height:1in;width:100%;Font-family:CODE 39;"> <center><font face="CODE 39" size="7">*14-483209*</font>
The concerned line is *14-483209* . The code perfectly shows barcode in one version of FF and doesn't show up in another. It could possibly hint that we may talk to people at FF.
