    Well you got further than I did... I tried getting there from a work computer that allows access to google and it seems as the Edge browser I am at is out of date. But sharing the message I got here. Here is the URL I used:
    https://fonts.google.com/

    Your browser is not currently supported. Google Fonts works best on Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari.

    Did you make sure that Firefox is the latest version?

    I find it odd that its as if google itself in your screenshots is missing the fonts and that's why they are in red (x). You might have to contact Google Support on this.

    Just looked back into this and its actually red ( +) symbols and not X's, and a count of 6.

    Wonders if you need browser update. I would think clicking on the (+) might expand display a list of them, but unable to test from work on my break here.

      Thanks so much for looking at this.  This is weird.  I think it's my computer, as I'm getting this on all browsers.  I have two other computers that don't do this.  Firefox is up to date.  It's not google itself.  I changed the security sandbox thing through about:config so far, but again, I don't think it's firefox.  I don't have a noscript plugin or extention.  Did some housekeeping.  I have a v8...i7...so I'm still working on it.  Again, thanks for checking this out and for your response.

        I'm thinking that this thing happened after I was doing something with apache server and wamp server.  I may have been following an erroneous tutorial among the tutorials that I was using.  I since removed apache and wamp.  I'm thinking that this could be in the registry.  Any suggestions on a reliable registry tutorial?

            Well keep watching this thread and maybe someone will come up with something.  I'm still working on it.

              Not quite sure what unseen fonts has to do with security....did you happen to check google Forums for an answer ? ?

                It's not helpful but I see what the OP shows until I set Noscript to "Allow All on this page"; of course as the OP has clarified that they are not using NoScript, and they are using multiple browsers- And Chrome and Edge appear to show it correctly for me, so that isn't it.

                I will say however that it is unlikely to be related to your use of WAMP Server software or to be something security related.
