I recently opened my Safari browser to find the following font had replaced majority of text on the internet for me



Its weird because in my preferences area both of the appearance fonts are still standard, can anybody tell me how to fix this..

you can see only select text is affected(the text on left 'kiss font') is some of the affected text while other parts of the page remain the same, this occurs on most pages.

I really don't know the specific answer to your question. But, if I had that problem I would:
1. Go to Go>Home>Library>Preferences and delete any Safari preferences.
2. Download and run the OnyX maintenance utility, its free and self explainitory. Get it at http://www.titanium.free.fr/pgs2/english/download.html.

Hope this helps.

No, not the user account in the System Preferences. The path posted by VegasGeorge and that you have to follow is this:

Macintosh HD -> Users -> your user account -> Library -> Preferences folder.

Hi, barleychase

Here's how to find your Safari plist file.

Double-click your hard drive to open it. Then do the same on the folder that says Users.

Do it again on the folder that has your log-in name on it. Then do it to the Library folder.

Then double-click the Preferences folder (not the PreferencePanes folder).

Inside the Preferences folder is a file called com.apple.Safari.plist — the Safari preferences list.

Drag the com.apple.Safari.plist to the desktop, quit Safari and restart it. Doing so will create a new plist that isn't corruped, unlike the old one that might be.
QUOTE Thanks
