Firefox crashes when I load a page that uses the Franklin Gothic font.

Hello. Firefox (and Word 2008 for that matter) has been crashing whenever it tries to load / use a front from the "Franklin Gothic" font family. I've looked around for solutions, but most just recommend removing the font; I'm trying to see how else I can fix the problem, as I need to use Franklin Gothic... a lot.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Do you have only one version of that font?

found another copy of the font, and it's working now! sometimes the simplest ways escape me in the midst of troubleshooting.
