Do you use any registry cleaners? Since when are you seeing this? try a System Restore to a date before that.

You never answered my question "Is Blackletter the only font with this problem?"

I don't but it's been like this since I reinstalled windows a few weeks ago I think so there is not much point in doing that.

If your problem is with just Blackletter try downloading it from another site.

What if you create a new user account? Do you experience the same problems there? User Account - Create

I am not talking about a new firefox user but a new Windows user.

Try this:

Start> In search box type fonts> Enter> Font settings on left> See if Hide fonts based on language settings is checked, or unchecked (mine is checked)> Try the setting with it checked and unchecked

You can also click the Reset default font settings if that does not work.
