Summary0008771: Cannot install Ardour 6.8 if the ardour website is open due to fonts being in use
DescriptionI was just trying to download and install Ardour 6.8, but the installer was hitting an issue writing the new version of ArdourSans and ArdourMono fonts. When I tried to delete them manually, Windows indicated that Firefox has a lock on those files. I suspect the fonts got added to the system path somehow and Firefox used them preferentially over any webfont definitions you have in the website's CSS, but I haven't investigated that far.
Steps To ReproduceTry to install Ardour 6.8 over a previous version of Ardour 6 while having the website open in Firefox at the same time
TagsNo tags attached.

This can happen if Ardour has crashed in the past. The solution is to reboot and then re-install Ardour.

afaict Ardour exited normally after I closed the initial dialog with the prompt to upgrade (though I wasn't running a debug build previously either and so cannot confirm this). what I find odd is that after examining the styles on the download page again I can't find references to ArdourSans and ArdourMono (unless these are renamed ttf files for other fonts) - intriguing...
