Safari > Preferences > Appearance. From there change the Standard font to Verdana 16point and the fixed width font to Courier 13. Those are Apple defaults.

i managed to fix the bug, the way i did it was,
Macintosh HD-> library->Fonts-> double click on any font and it'll open the font book then click on the web tab on the left hand side bar.

In the tab will be all the fonts that your web browser uses, i found a font in there called "linkin" click the odd font if its there and click the cog button thats under the close button on the top left of the window and choose - validate font, it will scan the font and if a exclamation mark in the yellow circle appears click "remove font" button at the bottom right of the screen!

it managed to clear the font that was ruining my web browsing/ mental state

I hope this helps others with the same problem i had!

I've had this problem for a while. I tried to do it your way, but it shows no web fonts in Font Book. I use Extensis Suitcase also, is this the problem?
