    There is something wrong with my browsers (Safari and Firefox) and Times New Roman doesn't seem to change even if i change the fonts in my browsers. What might be the issue? What can i check?

    Check your browser preferences, i know on firefox there's an option for the browser to override the font.

    In FF it's under Tools-->Options-->Content

    Under Fonts & Colors Click Advanced and there's a checkbox to "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above" Make sure that that checkbox is ticked.

    Also to say that i installed a slightly older version of FF and problems still same. Can it be a font manager that is handling the fonts? Even though that doesn't really seem to be the problem!

    im not trying to change them, it just occurred to me that maybe it could be the font managing application. but i don't think so cause i haven't made any changes to that application regarding fonts. Im using the "font explorer x pro" if thats what your asking

    your original question said that the font won't change. what are you trying to do, and how are you trying to do it?
