Failed to decode downloaded font , KaTeX, MathQuill


I am getting Failed to decode downloaded font error for both Katex and Mathquill (npm package),

I am using Meteor 1.4 and Sass

I tried putting the fonts into public/fonts folder and adjusting the font face in the scss file, that only worked partially for katex and not at all for mathquill.

Is this error Meteor specific or is it a problem with the packages?

I noticed that if I rename the mathquill.css file to .scss and import it in my main.scss file I do not get the error.

This also seems to be a problem for materialize following this github thread

any help is appreciated
