Recently when I open a PDF file in Safari it displays as non-readable text. How can this be fixed?

MacBook Pro, 10.7.5 Lion; Safari 6.0.5; Adobe 11

    With Safari open press Command + Option + E on your keyboard.

     

    Quit and relaunch Safari to test.

     

     

    If that didn't help, have you installed any third party fonts recently?

    In my case I have tried the suggested fixes and I have installed music fonts recently.  Firefox will display PDFs fine.  Something is interferring with Safari only.

     

    Any suggestions.  You seem to know what you are talking about.

     

    Thanks!
