Some of my browser fonts have changed.

Posted

Recently, my firefox has been displaying all headings in a weird font. Here is what the font looks like: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/diagram1.jpg And another example of it happening, right in the firefox website (its the blue font) http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/Picture4.png this oddly appears this way on all blog-style webpages I have been on in the last few weeks. Even some news pages! I have tried going into the options in firefox to see if it was a font option that changed, but it appears to be fine. Here is what my font options look like: http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a77/saracmd/Picture3.png Can someone please help me out? I would really like to have this changed back to normal.
