Firefox/Google Chrome Messed up fonts!!

Anyone know what is causing this problem in FF and Chrome?

Don't see this problem in IE 8 and it only occurs on SOME sites..

Only 2-3 I've encountered so far..

The site in the image is www.bleacherreport.com

Try re-installing FF/Google Chrome.

Already tried..

The fact that it occurs in those two browsers indicates that it might be a font setting that's causing the problem instead of an issue in the actual browser(s).

Have you checked your character/text encoding settings? Make sure they're set to Default.

Character encoding is unicode (UTF-8), but changing it to Western (ISO-8859-1) doesn't do anything either..

Try using google to see if you can find any answers regarding your problem, If you can't find anything then I guess you gotta format your computer > :(

I've been searching for a solution for the last 2-3 days..

Formatting is not an option.

I guess the only option you have is -

A) Get it fixed somehow.
B) If you can't get it fixed, Just use IE 8 for the sites you can't view properly on Google Chrome / FF and for the sites you can view just switch back to Chrome / FF.

Yes, it's off.

I've done everything in FF from changing the font encoding, to the actual fonts themselves, etc..

But the problem, like I said, is that it is also present in Google Chrome..

I'm beginning to think it's something that is an issue in my windows settings..

Oddly enough, the fonts work properly in Firefox 4.0 beta 1.
