Windows 7: Font can't stop changing on Facebook IE10

Font can't stop changing on Facebook IE10

I'm using Internet Explorer 10 and this problem does not happen in other browsers.

Today, I realized that the font on Facebook suddenly changed to a very ugly one and I'm sure that this is my PC/browser problem as others (including people who are using IE10) don't have it.

I restarted my PC and it turns back to normal.

However, after a few minutes on Facebook, it changed again and I've already restarted my PC several times and it's still not fixed.

Is it my PC/browser/Facebook problem?

Hi and Welcome to SevenForums,

I suspect this is your PC or Browser
A few things to try...
1. Does it do this across different browsers (Lets say Internet Explorer, Chrome, FireFox)
2. Have you tried to clear the browsers cache?
3. Have you installed any new fonts recently, if you have try removing them and see if this resolves the issue.

Nope it just happens in IE.
Yes but it doesn't work.

The problem was there just now too but gone while I'm typing this (I just switched tab and it was gone there on Facebook).
