OS X :: Font In Firefox & Safari - Rogue Font Has Hijacked My Web Fonts?

Aug 1, 2009

I just got some internet going again after having moved. I've had my new Octopus for a few weeks tho. So much to my surprise, I open up my gmail account and it's practically unintelligible. Some weird cartoon like font is my default font. As far as I can tell, all the default fonts are activated and all the settings point to the activated fonts, but this is driving me absolutely F__KING bonkers. Has anyone ever had this problem? Now to be fair, I did install some fonts from a semi questionable font disk a week or two ago, so maybe some rogue font has hijacked my web fonts.

Software :: Font Size Big In Both Firefox And Safari?

Oct 12, 2010

A web dev client of mine was complaining about the site we built her, and sent over some screenshots. It appears her font size is about two sizes larger than "normal" in both Firefox and Safari. I had her reset it to normal in Firefox - no change, apparently the setting wasn't made in Firefox.

Applications :: Firefox Wants To Use A Font To Access A Volume?

Apr 6, 2009

I received an odd popup window in Firefox 3.0.8 on a Mac running Leopard 10.5.6

It was:

Firefox wants to use the font "Lucida Sans Unicode" on the volume "NO NAME".

This font is not installed. Allow Firefox to use this font?

Note: Volume "NO NAME" is my Boot Camp XP partition.

Also, in the screenshot it says Firefox3 as I renamed the Firefox app that while testing version 3 while keeping version 2 on the drive.

Does anyone recognize this popup?

Why is FIrefox trying to access my Boot Camp partition?

Why would it need to use a font on a volume?

Applications :: Installed Pith Helmet - Unexpected Safari Font Change

Mar 8, 2005

Safari has changed fonts on me; some, but not all, fonts on websites are now presented in some clunky cartoonish font. This is mostly fonts at smaller sizes. I've checked my preferences and the fonts specced there are the usual, Times & Courier. The only new thing is that I recently installed Pith Helmet. There seems to be no mention of any kind of font issues witrh PH, and an uninstall of it has made no difference.

MacBook Pro :: Font Size On 17 Is Too Small - How Can I Increase The Font Size

Jun 4, 2010

I'm trying to increase the font size of my mac, but I can't find it anywhere. I should be really simple to do so I'm probably missing something. On windows you just right click the desktop > appearance and bang. How can I do it on the mac? Oh and I don't want to increase the font of safari or finder, i already know how to do that, what I'm looking for is a way to make all fonts bigger (including menus)... just like you do on windows, make all fonts 1.2 times bigger.

OS X V10.4 :: Change Bold Font On Safari 4.1.3?

Feb 26, 2012

Recently replaced my internal hard drive and had to re-download and update everything... Forgot which version of Safari I had before with my OS X 10.4.11, so I got Safari v4.1.3... It works great, but I know the bold fonts were never THIS bold. Here is what I'm currently looking at: 

I tried selecting "Never use font sizes smaller than 9", and I even tried "Empty Cache" as well as "Reset Safari...", but it's still ridiculously bold.

Intel Mac :: Safari Font Too Large?

Jun 6, 2012

I have set my zoom to default in safari and the font sizes in Preferences should be set to the default.  In most websites I visit that have a navigation bar at the top, I can't read even read the word within the button. The font is abnormally large.  When I use the zoom font only feature it doesn't change much.  When I use the regular zoom commands, all the graphics zoom like normal, but any the font of any of the links remains huge.  So large that a lot of websites are unusable b/c all the links run together. This issue is on an 10.7 using safari 5.1.

OS X :: Font Options In Safari After Installing Some Downloaded Fonts?

Feb 23, 2009

The other night I pulled some fonts that I downloaded a few years ago off of my external hard drive and installed them one by one into Font Book to the User profile. Right after I finished this, I noticed that now about 80% of the text on pages in Safari now appeared as the Yahoo font, instead of what they used to be (I visit about 10 different sites on a regular basis, so there's probably a variety of fonts that normally appear, but now most things appear as the Yahoo font). I don't have any style sheet selected in the Safari preferences, and the font preferences are untouched from what they are when Safari is installed. Not only are a lot of sites now hard to read because of the mess that the Yahoo font around size 10 is, but its just flat out annoying to read that crazy font.
