    Which fonts did you install? Did you replace some system fonts by any chance (bad idea)?

    Have you tried:
    - restarting (gotta ask)
    - cleaned font caches (easy with something like MainMenu), then retarted
    - repairing permissions (I'm not joking), then restarted (do you see a pattern here? ;))
    - resolving duplicates after uninstalling the new fonts and verified that your old ones, specially "key" ones for websurfing, like Arial and Helvetica (or even Times)
    - set the default font in Firefox to one that actually works (important after e.g. trying Minefield)
