    Hey guys, Just need a bit of help testing something for my website.

    This is my problem and it's really doing my head in When someone visits my site for the first time it gets stuck on loading google fonts.

    This only happens when the site is visited for the first time and my hosting provider nor the theme designer can figure it out.... It's literally killing my site, every new visitor just leaves (I think). Although I'm getting bounce rates of 9% I'm going to assume thats not accurate.

    Anyhow, point is I need to see what other people see. I've tried visiting the site on different IPs and still have the problem. It's fine after the first visit because it gets cached in the browser, but problem is the first visits takes a long time to load fonts. Not only that my pop ups etc don't work until the fonts loaded... super annoying, even though they are set to pop up when they exit the browser.

    So I need to see what other people see, It would be much appreciated if a few people could visit the site and tell me what they see for the first 2 seconds at least. Best if you haven't visited before or clear browser cache. Firefox and Safari seem to be the worst

    Just need you to tell me if you seen picture 1 or 2. Cheers will help me out a lot in trying to figure this bullshit issue out.

    it loads quite fast on the latest FF, but the site looks like your 1st pic, i guess that's no good, however your 2nd pic looks exactly like a cropped version of the 1st :)
