I am on a Mac. This morning there was an update which I installed. Now the homepage and many others like Wikipedia and Google and Gmail all have a strange handwriting font that I can't seem to get rid of. I have tried going into preferences - all the settings look the same. I have tried changing them to no effect. I have clicked and un-clicked the option to allow web pages to choose the font - no change. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox...nothing. Any ideas as to how to fix this?
