MOBI file from InDesign won't change fonts

Not sure what is going on. We have a MOBI KF8 eBook that was generated from an ePub that was generated from InDesign. For some reason when reading on a Kindle Fire we are unable to change the fonts. We can change the fonts in Kindle Previewer though and the code looks just fine. Also we have KF8 eBooks generated from our XML workflow that do not have this problem.

Has anyone else had this issue?

No offense meant for asking this, but are you certain it's a reflowable ePUB, not inadvertently FXL? (Fixed-Layout) FXL has this issue, of course. When you change the font size, does it reflow?

What's your CSS for the body? Do you perhaps have a font style set there? In the ePUB you used to build the MOBI?
