Hi all

Im new to the forum so hi everyone.

I have a problem with my MacBook Pro.

I downloaded some free fonts from the internet for a project, added the ones I needed to font book and then when I have opened my web browser all the type on pages such as google are set in one of the typefaces I downloaded. This wouldnt be as much of a problem if the type face that was creating problems wasnt the Metallica typeface.

Ive deleted the offending fonts from my machine but still the problem persists.

Does anyone know why this is happening or how to solve it?

Thanks in advance

Might be a problem with the font cache. Try to boot in safe mode, that should clear some caches, including font cache.
