Webpack5 Automatic publicPath is not supported in this browser

I was working on webpack 4.44.2, I face this error when I convert to webpack5.0.0

ERROR in ./src/assets/sass/styles.scss
Module build failed (from ./node_modules/mini-css-extract-plugin/dist/loader.js):
Error: Automatic publicPath is not supported in this browser
at E:\maktab\Control-panel\newcontrol\final-control\node_modules\css-loader\dist\cjs.js!

the error is from the font file bath in fonts.scss

@font-face {
    font-family: "Janna LT";
    src: local("Janna LT"), url(../fonts/janna.woff) format("woff");
    font-weight: normal;
}

@font-face {
    font-family: "Janna LT";
    src: local("Janna LT"), url(../fonts/janna-bold.woff) format("woff");
    font-weight: bold;
}
