I've disabled it on staging to show what this would look like.

@Nirzar heads up this would mean the font control appears above when in beta:

We should decide whether this is acceptable. If not, balance whether the work to do this is less/greater than the additional work to find a fix for the refresh issue.

Lemme know Olga if you'd like to revisit this but I'm assuming you'd rather ship it :).

sounds good to me :)
