Hi all,
Some how, the fonts on my macbook look different. At first, I thought it was firefox, but it seems to be everything, from the terminal to Word.. The fonts just don’t look as smooth and clear as they did before. They’re harder to read and not as full.

I cleared the font caches with Font Finangler but it didn’t do anything.

OSX version: 10.6.4

Thank you, in advance.

Can you take a screenshot? It's hard to know without seeing it.

That's the thing, I don't know if a screen shot would really show much.. the change isn't that drastic... if i had one of before and after.. anyways, here's the screenshot.


edit: can't upload pic directly.. i need to load it to the web

Is there anyway to just re-install my fonts (without re-installing the whole OS), or just set everything back to default?
