No, Firefox supports WOFF as of version 3.6 and Opera from version 11.

However, Firefox does (per spec) implement a same-origin restriction so if the server that serves the document and the one that serves the font differ,it will not use it.

What tool did you use to perform the conversion, out of interest?
