When I upfraded to Snow Leopard, I had a prblem with fonts. In any browser, a strange font was active instead of a normal one. Attached, is a picture where he problem can be seen. I've already tried to delete the duplicated fonts in Font Book which worked the fisrst time but now I have the same problem but I can't really set the deault font back on. I've also tried to change the fonts in the browser settings but it doesn't seem to be the problem too.Screen shot 2012-11-06 at 8.10.11 PM.jpg

    You've installed a junk font that has the same internal name as the real Arial font, which it is bumping. Remove any recent third party font you added and the problem should correct itself.

    I really didn't install any new font.... But how can I delete all the fonts I have installed myself?

    Maybe not directly, but an app you installed must have dumped more fonts onto your drive, as the one shown isn't any font that comes with OS X.

    But how can I delete all the fonts I have installed myself?

    Check the Fonts folder in your user account. If there are any fonts in it, remove them. Otherwise, compare the contents of the /Library/Fonts/ folder with this list and remove any which are not in the list.

     

    Another way to find it is to open Font Book (or whatever font manager you're using) and click through them one at a time until the preview you see matches the bad font. Remove it.
