Often It is but not obvious.

Example: FF try these...

Tools, Options, General, Font & Colors, Advanced and Uncheck "Allow pages to choose their own fonts."

Or

Open about:config then Set "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled" to false.

Others have that buried somewhere too. Just web search disable fonts Browser Name
