Windows 7: Web Browser fonts changed after installing new fonts to computer

Web Browser fonts changed after installing new fonts to computer

Recently I installed two fonts onto computer for Typography, and upon doing so the fonts changed on Google Chrome and Firefox to this bold font. It appears to be the default font as before, just in bold now.

I've tried checking the browsers font settings, and they're at the settings they were before this new bold text started showing up.

Anyone with any idea on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello AnonymousUsar,

Have you tried to reset both Browsers to default?

Firefox - Reset to Default

Chrome Browser - Reset to Default

Hope this helps,
John

Since GC will not reset. I would Uninstall GC, then reinstall it.
