Front focusing basically refers to two possible problems.
One is when your camera's predictive AF puts the focus point in front of where the proper plane of focus should be, so you always end up with say, pictures where the focus is always a consistent 6 inches in front of the subject.
The second refers to when all your images have their plane of focus in front of the subject, whether you AF or MF. You can visually confirm that the subject is in focus, but when you images turn out, the focal plane still ends up some distance in front of the subject.
