    Text problems across many apps.

    I have a problem where the text is displayed incorrectly in a different apps and different situations.

    Here are some images to show you what I mean, it happens in Firefox, Safari, Camino, Opera, and rarely in other apps, although I mainly use the mac for web development so it could happen just as much in others...

    Any ideas???

    hmm did you install any other fonts since you purchased the computer that might be causing the problem? try disabling the font you installed before having this issue. restart the computer and see if the problem persists.

    it looks like those were both taken in safari, go into preferences and change your font to helvetica 16 and you should have no problems
    fixed font: helvetica 13

    Here's a tip from Apple on how to check if any fonts may have a problem.

    Problem solved :)
    I opened font book and highlighted all the fonts with a dot next to them.

    Then went to Edit -> Resolve Duplicates.

    Now it works like it should!
