tabs, dialogue boxes, search boxes and some web sites spontaneously started apearing in illegible font, need to change to default font

I really can't figure out what I did, but suddenly all the dialogue boxes, tab names, task bar names, search boxes, URLs, and some web sites (e.g. wikipedia) started appearing in a weird, script like font. This makes the English hard to read and the Chinese almost impossible. (I need to visit a lot of Chinese web sites for work, and my task bar is always in Chinese.) Please help, there is so much important stuff I can't read and it is driving me crazy. Update: I tried running in safe mode, and that fixes the task bar and the tabs, but Chinese text in any web site and sometimes English text (any where I have to fill in a form or again, wikipedia) still appears in the script font. I tried enabling the default appearance add-on, but apparently it is already enabled.
