Windows 7: Font changed in some websites

Font changed in some websites

Hi guys,

I hope I am posting this in the right thread.

1. So, I got this psd file and needed to install "Lucida Grande" in order to change some text files in it. After I installed it, some fonts on some websites changed. For example some posts on Facebook and Twitter now have different fonts:



Couldn't find anything about this on google. Not sure whats the catch :)


2. Also just another quick question. Is it possible to change the "Your most popular sites in IE9" to the ones I want. Something like in Safari?


Thanks very much for the help.

In IE8: Tools/Internet Options/General/Fonts may help.

IE9 is not yet available; You are probably using IE9 Beta.

Maybe the fonts are supposed to change since you now have the fonts specfied by the website. Nevertheless the fonts link in IE tools should allow you to change to another preferred font in IE.
