Today, Mozilla has formally announced @font-face support for WOFF  
fonts, to be implemented in Firefox 3.6 (beta release expected within  
a few days; nightly builds are available for adventurous users). The  
announcement can be found on the Mozilla blog:

with a more detailed post on hacks.mozilla.org:

We hope this move will encourage font vendors to license fonts for use  
in WOFF format, other browser vendors to press forward with  
implementing similar support for WOFF, and web designers to explore  
new typographic possibilities as a wider range of fonts become  
available for Web use.
