    Unhappy Fonts are screwed up after Lion Installation

    I can't see text on all installation windows, browsers and whatnot. It happened right after I upgraded to Lion and it really sucks! Does anyone know how to fix this? I've updated all my software to the latest stuff too =[

    This happens EVERYWHERE. Not only browsers, iTunes software updates, etc.

    Try booting into Safe mode. Restart holding down the Shift key until you see the Apple. Then restart. Let us know if that fixes it.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thumbs up
    Got it fixed. Gawd. I Opened font book, selected all fonts, validated each and every one of em and found out which of them had errors or warnings. I then went on and deleted all the error-laden fonts. This fixed it right up. You got to force delete the fonts once they've been trashed, So I used that terminal code for forcing the trash bin to empty.
