Doesn't make a difference.

Just uninstall and reinstall FF. Would only take less than 5 minutes. (high
speed connection)

That might not make any difference, even if Firefox was the problem
(though I don't think it is in this case). I believe that when you
remove Firefox, it will leave your user profile, which is where your
preferences are stored. Unless you delete or move your old profile,
when you re-install Firefox, it will pick up your old preferences all
over again.

Do you have any other fonts in the font folder?
Call that "lateral thinking".
It could be.

There are 4238 files in the font folder.
I do have a font manager, Font Navigator, but nothing changed there.

Untick it and close FF. Open FF, tick it again. Close FF. Open it again
and see if fonts are right now.
I already did that. Didn't make a difference.

I uninstalled FF and removed personal data and profile.
After that I did a clean install of FF. Did not make any difference.

Yes, it's there. Look at "Installed Windows Updates" and uninstall it
like any other program.
OK, thanks. I was there indeed. I uninstalled IE10 but it did not make a
difference.

And right there, those are two significant factors, that
make your install different from everyone else!

Apparently, Font Navigator allows controlling fonts in separate
folders, so they don't all have to sit in one folder.

www.conserve.nl chooses
font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
Firefox here displays Arial

www.maisondesmiracles.nl chooses
font-family: Verdana,Geneva,sans-serif;
Firefox here displays Verdana

www.nu.nl chooses
font-family: Arial,helvetica,sans-serif;
Firefox displays Arial

Interestingly if I copy and paste text from above into Microsoft Word
the fonts are displayed as Times new Roman, the default for Word.

Take a look at this web page which choose font-family: Impact, Charcoal,
sans-serif

Hi all,

A month or so ago I upgraded IE9 to IE10. It ruined my default browser,
Mozilla FF. All fonts on websites showed since then as Times New Roman.
So I put a system image back and was happy with my FF again.

Now, all of a sudden, M$ stroke and FF is ruined again. And yes, my IE9
has been sneakily updated to IE10 by a Windows update. Ofcourse I can
put a system image back and never apply any updates to my system again
but there must be a better way. How can I uninstall @#$%! IE10 and undo
the damage?

Or, perhaps, how can I make FF to show the real fonts again?

Thanks beforehand,
Fokke
A lot of people are having trouble with this Windows update: KB2670838

It actually causes Firefox to crash on some computers, and it could be
giving you a problem.

Yeah, I always like to make things more complicated :)

There's one folder containg all the fonts. Its a subfolder of Documents.
And there's the C:\Windows\Fonts folder as well, containing 608 fonts.

But I did not change anything here.
Uninstalled IE10 but FF still shows the defaukt font.

I thought it 'might' work and was worth trying since it was so quick and
easy to try.
Hopefully you will find the real solution.
Perhaps it wasn't IE 10 after all, but another program or update that is
causing the problem.
Do not let MS Update ever install any hardware drivers (esp audio or video
card) updates, unless you are sure they are the right ones and you actually
need them. They can mess up many things on you computer.
You probably already know that, but I mentioned it just in case you didn't.

I thought I would suggest that since it was quick and easy and may have even
worked. :)
Perhaps it is a different program (other than IE 10) or another MS update
that changed the font behavior.
I have heard of MS driver updates to audio and video devices mess things up
also and I never allow MS Updates to install those.
You probably already knew that. When you find the solution, please post back
with it.
Good hunting.

Yes. But I did not see IE10 there. Did you?
It's under "Turn Windows features on or off", not in the main panel. I
had to look around to find it, since it wasn't where Nil said :)

Are you sure? On my computer it's under Programs and Features | View
Installed Updates.

This is great!!
Uninstalling KB2670838 solved my problem.
Many thanks!

It's amazing that one update, causes so many different symptoms.

Weird. I have that update on my Win 7 x64 and it's running fine. Must
be related to the hardware you're running.
