    its not only on websites, but on the mac itself

    Open Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal, then type in the following and press enter: sudo atsutil databases -remove

    Enter your password, then reboot. This will clear the font caches.

    It lets you type; it just doesn't show anything. Just type in your password and press the enter key.
