    Hi,

    I did some to my font book, and now all the fonts i see in firefox and safari appear thicker than they should..

    Is there an easy way I can restore the default fonts in font book to the way they originally came, without reinstalling osx?

    Thanks!
    Ari

    Did you, by any chance, change the anti-aliasing setting? This option can be found in System Preferences, under Displays (or something like that). If it's set to something besides Normal (best for CRT), change it. I think that's what it's called... but I'm not sure.

    It sounds more like he removed core OS fonts like Lucida, so the OS is falling back on other fonts not optimized for the GUI.

    I'm pretty sure these are on the OS installation discs in a package file, but I haven't checked myself.
