The browser is picking up fonts from my font list to use in browser alert boxes, pull down menus, and sometimes in whole web sites. Unfortunately it chose a Old English font that is virtually impossible to read under 18pt. It also uses a second scrip font for Bold styles.

For an example of where it is used, the pull down menu at the bottom of the Firefox Help page labeled "Other Languages" appears on my screen as an Old English font called "Westminster Gofisch"

You can do a check for corrupted and duplicate fonts and other font issues:

You can do a font test to see if you can identify corrupted font(s).

You can also try different default fonts.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced
  • [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
