Issue 231680: Text randomly reverts to serif font

Reported by, Apr 15 2013 Project Member

Issue description

Version: 28.0.1469.0 (Official Build 192780) dev but it's been happening for a while now
OS: Mac OS X

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Load HTML spec (
2. Leave it loaded for a long time while using the browser
3. Scroll down half-way and look for serif text

You're not supposed to see any serif. But you do.

The text that turns serif still leaves room for its proper font.
Sometimes I see this on other pages too, not just the HTML spec.
I was assuming other people would see this too, but the fact that this is still broken suggests to me it only happens if you have really large files open?

I am seeing this regularly. Adding into the mix I have only seen it when the page loads a custom font and I have the developer tools open (at this point not sure if this is coincidence or related).

Mac OS X, Chrome Version 28.0.1500.95.
