Arial font missing — browsers showing most text as italic or bold

Posted on


Today I opened up my browser (Opera 11.60) and noticed that all of the font was italicized. There are still some text that isn’t italicized, but most of the text is italicized. I then opened up Firefox 9.0.1, and all of the font was bold. I looked at the Fonts in the Control Panel, and I have Arial Black, Arial Bold, Arial Bold Italic, Arial Italic.

So, does anyone know why this is happening?


So downloading and reinstalling the fonts found in this post at solved my problem! Just unzip the attachment, and copy over to the C:WindowsFonts.

So, try:

Go to Fonts Directory, Delete Regular Arial Font, reboot, and reinstall it.

Solved the problem for some lucky users.
