Stuck with a bad font in Safari

Safari used to have an option in an appearance setting to select a default font for webpages, and back in high school, I made it something dumb and illegible. It's still set to that same font through transferring my data from one computer to the next, but now the option to change it back is gone. I can't install an older version of Safari to change it, am I stuck with it? My MacBook Pro is completely up to date with all upgrades.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
Step 1
The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your documents or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this behavior; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
*Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
Step 2
The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
Please take this step regardless of the results of Step 1.
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or earlier, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of Steps 1 and 2.

  • Up now stuck with reading list as unticking in safari preferences gas not worked

    Trying to use facetime on mac air to ipad cannot get contacts up; now stuck with reading list as unticking in safari preferences has not worked how do i get rid of reading list and add contacts to macair please?

    This seems to have been fixed by going to settings>iCloud, deleting Safari, and then adding it back again, effectively resetting iCloud for Safari on the iOS device.

  • Adobe Revel has re-dated thousands of my pictures, and when I correct them, Revel auto corrects them back to some bad date. I am stuck with thousand of pictures that I cannot correct the dates.

    Adobe Revel has re-dated thousands of my pictures, and when I correct them, Revel auto corrects them back to some bad date. I am stuck with thousand of pictures that I cannot correct the dates.

    I know it sounds confusing.  Essentially I have to re-register to get into my Adobe Photoshop 3.2.  But they are no longer giving access codes when you go though the registration process.  I checked my "online account" and there are no records of my registration for this.  I had this program, used this program and I can even see my pictures all lined up behind the "registration" box that pops up (and then kicks me out of the program when I hit "register later").  I just want a registration number...any number...that will allow me to open up the PS 3.2 and allow me access to my pictures.  I was told by one of the more sympathetic online CSR's via email that I could call the 800 number and hopefully get another number, but I run the battery out on my hand held phone waiting on hold for so long...I am not kidding you.  This seems like a very very simple matter...just give me an access code...but it has turned remarkably frustrating because I cannot reach a live person to ask.  You would think Adobe would not be happy that customers would have to wait so long...because why would you ever want to actually purchase an Adobe product if you know for certain that there is no support for it.  It is somewhat making up my mind on Adobe products.  Again, I cannot retrieve these pictures with a search, they are not in the digital camera folder as someone advised before.  I would love any and all feedback on what to do about this.  Is it possible that the files are corrupted?  Yes...but why can I clearly see the photos behind the registration box.  Please, anyone, help!

  • Problems with Photos and Fonts and Explorer

    I am having problems with photos and fonts when my site is viewed on Explorer. The site is Ostyn-Newman.com The problems can both be seen on the start page -though they happen throughout the site. The photo is supposed to be only 30% opaque and it shows fine on Firefox or Safari, but Explorer viewers get the photo being used as wallpaper at 100% and this steps all over the text. Should I give up a using a photo as wallapaper?
    Also the font I am using for "Ostyn-Newman Objects for Fine Homes" shows well in Firefox and Safari, but looks really bad on Explorer products. Should I just change the font? I am currently using Snell Roundhand.

    See Roddy's posts in these topics:

    The message in each is pretty much the same but he does give some info of an application that can optimize the web pages to make them more readily readable by IE.

  • Fonts in Safari

    I recently upgraded to Leopard and I'm having a problem with fonts in Safari. What usually would appear as Trebuchet or Times is appearing as some strange font. I remember having this problem before Leopard (about 6 months ago) but cannot remember how I fixed it. And ideas?

    Does just disabling (rather than removing/trashing) potentially offending fonts work? I'm trying to solve this problem in a friend's 15-year-old-daughter's iBook, but i don't really want to arouse teenage ire by trashing all the grafitti-like fonts she's installed, and it'd take me too long to actually match exactly the font that's causing the problem (there's so many, and they're so similar). I'd rather just disable them all and let HER add them back in one at a time until the bad one is found.
    ps, upgrading the OS does seem to trigger this; in this case, it was going from Panther to Tiger that triggered it.

    1. This procedure is a diagnostic test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve the problem. But with the aid of the test results, the solution may take a few minutes, instead of hours or days.
    Don't be put off by the complexity of these instructions. The process is much less complicated than the description. You do harder tasks with the computer all the time.
    2. If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything in the test procedure. Backup is always a must, and when you're having any kind of trouble with the computer, you may be at higher than usual risk of losing data, whether you follow these instructions or not.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    3. Below are instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. As I wrote above, it changes nothing. It doesn't send or receive any data on the network. All it does is to generate a human-readable report on the state of the computer. That report goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. If you prefer, you can act on it yourself without disclosing the contents to me or anyone else.
    You should be wondering whether you can believe me, and whether it's safe to run a program at the behest of a stranger. In general, no, it's not safe and I don't encourage it.
    In this case, however, there are a couple of ways for you to decide whether the program is safe without having to trust me. First, you can read it. Unlike an application that you download and click to run, it's transparent, so anyone with the necessary skill can verify what it does.
    You may not be able to understand the script yourself. But variations of the script have been posted on this website thousands of times over a period of years. The site is hosted by Apple, which does not allow it to be used to distribute harmful software. Any one of the millions of registered users could have read the script and raised the alarm if it was harmful. Then I would not be here now and you would not be reading this message.
    Nevertheless, if you can't satisfy yourself that these instructions are safe, don't follow them. Ask for other options.
    4. Here's a summary of what you need to do, if you choose to proceed:
    ☞ Copy a line of text in this window to the Clipboard.
    ☞ Paste into the window of another application.
    ☞ Wait for the test to run. It usually takes a few minutes.
    ☞ Paste the results, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page.
    The sequence is: copy, paste, wait, paste again. You don't need to copy a second time. Details follow.
    5. You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken in “normal” mode, under the conditions in which the problem is reproduced. If the system is now in safe mode and works well enough in normal mode to run the test, restart as usual. If you can only test in safe mode, do that.
    6. If you have more than one user, and the one affected by the problem is not an administrator, then please run the test twice: once while logged in as the affected user, and once as an administrator. The results may be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you can't log in as an administrator, test as the affected user. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this section doesn’t apply. Don't log in as root.
    7. The script is a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, though you may not see all of it in the browser window, and you can then copy it. If you try to select the line by dragging across the part you can see, you won't get all of it.

    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    8. Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Click anywhere in the Terminal window and paste by pressing command-V. The text you pasted should vanish immediately. If it doesn't, press the return key.
    9. If you see an error message in the Terminal window such as "Syntax error" or "Event not found," enter
    exec bash
    and press return. Then paste the script again.
    10. If you're logged in as an administrator, you'll be prompted for your login password. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. You will not see the usual dots in place of typed characters. Make sure caps lock is off. Type carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you make three failed attempts to enter the password, the test will run anyway, but it will produce less information. In most cases, the difference is not important. If you don't know the password, or if you prefer not to enter it, press the key combination control-C or just press return  three times at the password prompt. Again, the script will still run.
    If you're not logged in as an administrator, you won't be prompted for a password. The test will still run. It just won't do anything that requires administrator privileges.
    11. The test may take a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that's abnormally slow may take longer to run the test. While it's running, there will be nothing in the Terminal window and no indication of progress. Wait for the line
    [Process completed]
    to appear. If you don't see it within half an hour or so, the test probably won't complete in a reasonable time. In that case, close the Terminal window and report what happened. No harm will be done.
    12. When the test is complete, quit Terminal. The results will have been copied to the Clipboard automatically. They are not shown in the Terminal window. Please don't copy anything from there. All you have to do is start a reply to this comment and then paste by pressing command-V again.
    At the top of the results, there will be a line that begins with the words "Start time." If you don't see that, but instead see a mass of gibberish, you didn't wait for the "Process completed" message to appear in the Terminal window. Please wait for it and try again.
    If any private information, such as your name or email address, appears in the results, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    13. When you post the results, you might see an error message on the web page: "You have included content in your post that is not permitted," or "You are not authorized to post." That's a bug in the forum software. Please post the test results on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.
    14. This is a public forum, and others may give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak only for themselves, and I don't necessarily agree with them.

  • Some fonts in Safari not working

    After updating to Safari 3.1, I noticed that some fonts in Safari now display as Helvetica fractions. However, when I use Firefox to view the same Web page, they display fine. I am using Suitcase Fusion 12.1.6 and manage Local Fonts. Some of the local fonts do not appear in the preview pane and say they are missing. I have located them and tried to add them (repaired first, all fonts do not need repair) but Suitcase will crash each time I locate the font.
    Also, I noticed in Firefox that it is using the same fonts for the default set as Safari. Times & Courier. Yet these fonts aren't missing in Suitcase, so I am not sure what is happening here.

    I am using Suitcase Fusion 12.1.6
    12.1.7 is the current version. You should probably update.
    but Suitcase will crash each time I locate the font.
    Either the font is bad, or Suitcase's database is bad. That it tells you local fonts are missing points more towards a problem with Suitcase.
    To reset Suitcase, close the application. It will give you a minor warning about available fonts. Click Quit. If you are NOT using Suitcase's vault, in your user account, go to ~/Library/Application Support/Extensis/Suitcase/ and delete the file:
    Suitcase Font Database.suitcasevault
    In the Preferences folder of your user account, delete the file:
    com.extensis.SuitcaseFusion.plist
    Relaunch Suitcase. You will need to reset any preferences in the program that you have changed from the defaults. You will also lose any sets you've created.
    If you ARE using the vault, following the above steps will cause you to lose all fonts you've added to the vault. If you have backups of all of your fonts, this is no big deal. Otherwise, be forewarned that they will be gone. What you can do is move the database file to the desktop. Then if the problem with Suitcase continues, you've likely eliminated its database as the problem. Then you can quit the app again and move your original database back into the ~/Library/Application Support/Extensis/Suitcase/ folder.
    please tell me if I nuke my font caches, how will it affect Suitcase Fusion.
    It won't do anything to Suitcase. It doesn't even create them. For the most part, OS X builds your font cache files. If you remove them, the OS will rebuild them when you restart.

  • Is there any way to set a content font in Safari 6.0?

    I just upgraded to Safari 6.0 a few minutes ago and ran into my first problem almost immediately. Is there any way to specify the font I want to use for posting in Blogspot? It had been set to a certain font and size in Safari's preferences before I upgraded, but the new version is stuck on Times 12 (which I hate) with no way to change it. (When I use Firefox, there's a "content" setting in preferences that lets me set Georgia 16.)

    Nope, you haven't lost your mind...yet, though we may both be driven nuts looking for features and settings which have apparently been renamed, replaced or removed. For those of us laggards who have utilized Apple's OS X apps since they were originally compiled in NeXTStep or OpenStep, but have not yet made the leap into iOS (yes…incredible isn't it?), the enforced integration of the two can generate digital backlash.
    This morning I turned to a PDF version of Pogue's most recently published Missing Manual (900+ pages for $13) and still cannot find any reference to how one sets fonts in Safari 6.0…perhaps someone with a greater attention span than I will point me to something I've overlooked? Please...?

  • The Bad Font thread...

    Hi guys,
    I just went through more than a thousand fonts, just to find that one that was messing up my browser.
    Guilty font: "Mark"
    I deactivated it and now everythings cool again.
    I searched this forum at first but found that several users had problems with different fonts. Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to group all "bad fonts" together in one thread. This could all spare us some valuable time. Post as you wish...
    Greetz!

    a THOUSAND thank you's...
    thanks for the tip. My bad font was Arial. Seems strange since it's a common font, but deactivating it did the trick. It was so frustrating for weeks because I couldn't read basic text on some sites, but never had time to research the problem...
    This is my first time exploring this forum, and it seems pretty helpful! Although Safari sounds like a nightmarish program for a lot of people. Other than this issue, mine works great - knock on wood!
    So, thanks!

  • Kernel panic / Internet access with a bad AirPort card

    My iBook G4 started suffering kernel panics just over a week ago. They have rapidly increased in frequency to the extent that it can take several attempts to boot up because they have started occurring during the boot up process (originally they occurred after the iBook had been on for a while).
    I've looked through the forum and have seen that there seem to be some common causes -RAM, AirPort card, or something to do with the HD. I ran disk utility on the HD and it didn't find any problems and I also successfully ran the 'repair disk permissions'. I have tried taking out the RAM -that didn't do anything. The kernel panic does frequently occur when I am either using Mail or Safari, but as I've said, it also occurs when I'm booting up -does the fact that it happens when I boot up mean that it cannot be the AirPort card (which incidentally is not under the keyboard -so it must be inside)?
    Earlier today I switched off AirPort and was able to work on the computer for almost three hours without any kernel panic (but also without internet access). Less than a minute after switching it back on, it froze again.
    If this does mean that the problem is with the AirPort card, I have a question about internet access. I use the iBook on a wireless network that stems from a modem with a Mac downstairs and I do not have any internet cables, or a phone line, in the room where the iBook is used. Is it possible to use something like AirPort Express even with a bad AirPort card? And does AirPort Express connect to the iBook, or to the main modem downstairs?
    Apologies for so many questions and many thanks for any help you are able to give -this has been driving me around the bend for the past week?

    Update:
    An acquaintance who works for Apple suggested that before assuming that the problem was the AirPort card / buying further equipment, I should boot up with the original installation disk in and use the disk utility function to 'repair disk'. I did that and got a 'Volume Header needs minor repair' message. It repaired that & I restarted the iBook. I was able to do an update back-up to my external hard drive & all was fine until I switched AirPort back on -there was an instant kernel panic.
    I figured that it couldn't hurt to run the Apple Hardware Test -did that and restarted again. Was able to open Mail (AirPort was on) but then the AirPort connection disappeared and the pointer froze, but there was no kernel panic screen. I had to force quit -restarted again. This time I was able to use Mail, downloaded a song on iTunes, and was on the internet for about 45mins before the connection disappeared and the pointer froze again. I could force quit the app but with a frozen pointer I ended up having to force quit again.
    I waited a while and then booted up again (without problem) but this time I was told that there was no Airport card present! Shut down and reran the Hardware Test (which said that AirPort 'Passed'). When I restarted AirPort was briefly there but disappeared when I opened AirPort Utility and at this point the pointer also froze. I did force quit to get out of the app and then there was a kernel panic. Is this now pretty conclusive that the AirPort card is the problem?
    I would appreciate any feedback -I've had a very frustrating week with this.
    Thanks.

  • HT201210 I am stuck with "The iPad could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt" message.

    Hi
    I have an iPad mini and it was on iOS 6.1.3, my friend came and he said that he knows how to install iOS 7 for me. I gave it to him and he tried to install it, but apparently he failed to do so and an "Activation Error" is appearing on the screen now asking me to register in the developers program.
    Now, we are trying to restore it back to iOS 6.1.3 using iTunes, the software downloads well and it starts restoring but that I keep getting this error message "The iPad could not be restored because the firmware file was corrupt.".
    I am sure that the file is not corrupted because it's downloaded via iTunes regular download and it's not from an outside source.
    I am stuck with this now and my iPad is useless this way.
    Please any suggestions ?

    Yes, don't download Beta Software that you have no business or legal right to download and quit taking bad advice from friends.
    Now to maybe get you out of the restoring jam, the only thing that I can think of that might work is to use recovery mode, unless you already tried it and it didn't work.
    You can read about it here, but the instructions are posted below.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4097
    Disconnect the USB cable from the iPad, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    Turn off iPad: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for iPad to turn off.
    If you cannot turn off iPad using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the iPad turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
    While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to iPad. When you reconnect the USB cable, iPad should power on.
    Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears you can release the Home button.
    If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the recovery mode alert that iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode.
    Use iTunes to restore iPad.

  • The font in Safari's bookmarks bar and tabs bar has suddenly changed

    The font in Safari's bookmarks bar and tabs bar has suddenly changed to a lighter font.  How do I change the font back?  I'm not speaking of the font size/type in the web browser in viewing web pages, but the font in the application itself has changed. It's rather annoying and would like to be able to change it back!  I'm running Safari v5.1.7

    OK, Margie, here's what to do . . .
    First Quit Safari.
    Then Find your User's (Home) folder library. 
    It's hidden, but here's how you find the Home Library:
    Click on the desktop to get the Finder menu.  Then go up to  "Go" in the menu bar, while holding down the option key.
    You'll now see the User Library in the drop down list. Open it, then look for the Fonts folder.
    Take the fonts folder to the desktop.
    Restart Safari.
    Any better?
    (Warning:  This is only for the Users/Home > Library > Fonts folder.  Under no circumstances, should this be done with the SYSTEM > Library > Fonts folder.) 

  • I use classical Hebrew for my work, and Pages will only display English characters even with a Hebrew font selected. If I cut and paste Hebrew characters from another document, as long as the font is supported, it will appear in Pages.  If I type it won't

    I use classical Hebrew for my work, and Pages will only display English characters even with a Hebrew font selected. If I cut and paste Hebrew characters from another document, as long as the font is supported, it will appear in Pages.  If I type it won't continue in Hebrew.  I have tried downloading several fonts, including those from professional societies, but the only way to get Hebrew in my document is to cut and paste.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I use an older MacBook running OS 10.9.1.  I used to do my Hebrew work in Word, but it is no longer supported by Mac OS.

    Just clarifying:
    Pages '09 has bad support for Hebrew, Arabic etc but will accept pasted text.
    Pages 5 has much better support but with bugs.
    If you have columns they are in the wrong order ie Text starts in the left column and ends in the right column.
    If you type English into Hebrew text it tends to fall in the wrong position eg instead of to the left of Hebrew punctuation it goes to the right.
    As Tom recommends the only real solution on the Mac is Mellel.
    Peter
    btw Tell Apple, they are amazingly slow to fix this running sore which has been broken since RtoL was supposedly introduced in OSX 10.2.3 over a decade ago.

  • Stuck with the apple and the scrolling gear while booting

    Hi there
    i am using my mac for more than 2 years , i did not format it or even fix any thing into it but now something bad happend...
    accdentaly my genius friend preesed the power putton for more than 5 seconds to start up the computer and i heared a sound and a the normal flashing light under the track pad and suddenly i was stuck with the apple gray booting screen and the scrooling gear and the computer does not go further .. i left for 2 hours and it still stuck with the same screen ... try to restart do any thing no results also ...
    NOTE: THE BIG PROPLEM IS THAT I PUT A PASSWORD FOR THE FRIMWARE AND I FORGOOT IT SO I CAN NOT USE THE FOLLWOING:
    1-the ability to use the "C" key to start up from an optical disc.
    2-the ability to use the "N" key to start up from a NetBoot server.
    3-the ability to use the "T" key to start up in Target Disk Mode (on computers that offer this feature).

    I was mistaken about the PMU..with a little more digging I found that Open Firmware password can be removed if you change the amount of memory installed.
    I found this info here: http://archive.macosxlabs.org/documentation/firmwaresecurity/faqs/faqs.html#remove_passwordprotection
    The following is a link from Apple's site to download the user's manual for your iBook:
    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/iBookG4(Mid2005)_UsersGuide.pdf
    It provides the instructions to add or remove memory from the machine. If you do have additional memory installed then you'll be able to remove the memory, and reset the PRAM, that way your password is gone. Hopefully from there we can figure out and fix your startup issue.

  • Stuck with SpryEffects

    My tables with master / detail relationship work fine
    on this
    page. The SpryEffects.js has been referenced from the head
    section. So far so good.
    Now I got stuck with applying effects to the div including
    the album covers.
    How can I exactly create animated transitions? I couldn't
    even find the code line including the effect in the gallery demo.
    Yes, I know I'm dumb.
    Any help is deeply appreciated.

    Ok, we finally pushed the sample to the labs site. Like I
    said, it will be going into the next version of Spry:

    You may notice that in IE, the text that fades in is
    hideously blocky ... that's due to the zoom property I set in the
    CSS rule for #description. Unfortunately, zoom is needed to
    workaround another IE bug ... or was it a feature? ... that has to
    do with elements not having layout. If you want to learn more about
    it do a net search on "hasLayout" and IE.
    Without the zoom property specified, you don't see the
    fade-in/fade-out in IE. Otherwise, it works perfectly in
    Mozilla/Firefox, Safari, and Opera 9.
