Windows 7: Browser font has changed all of a sudden. Pls help restore it!

27 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64

Same problem for months now, though still unresolved. I've been stuck looking at a handful of websites, most notably Facebook, rendered entirely in NeutraFace for 5 months with no solution. It's a great typeface for headlines and Art Deco projects, but unfortunately not for reading display text.

I've tried resetting all the Chrome options to default, restarting, deleting the offending font from my font folder, enabling direct-draw, etc. etc. etc. Still nothing. I'll continue to search for answers and post any resolution I hopefully come across.

Hi! For me it was this update, KB3013455, that changed the font and affected both my chrome browser (whilst on facebook it was more obvious) and my default openoffice writer font to a hideous one that was almost transparent. So, i deleted it and got my old font back.
