    Anyone seeing any problems with characters overlapping each other in Mail and Safari? I just noticed it, but I've been running Leopard for a few days now. Hopefully this question isn't a repeat, since I didn't find anything with google search or the built-in search. If it is a repeat...I apologize.

    This one is from Mail

    This is from Safari

    This is the snippet as Safari, but in Firefox

    And not related to the character issue, but odd...Gmail isn't getting along with Safari I think

    I was hoping this was fixed in leopard but I guess not. I've only had this problem once.

    Anyway delete /Library/Caches/com.apple.ATS/nnn <- nnn is your profiles UID. You can figure out your UID by going to the terminal and typing 'id -u xxxxx' <- xxxxx is the login of the user with the problem...

    Hope that helps!!!

    I just went looking to verify what I posted (shoulda done that beforehand I guess) :eek:

    I had the problem in Tiger, in Leopard the com.apple.ATS file isn't under /Library/Caches. :confused:

    I'll keep looking...

    Actually those instructions both in your post and that other thread worked perfectly.

    :D

    Still overlapping

    Hello, Padraic

    I can't seem to find the com.apple.ATS, don't know how paleck managed. Characters in Safari overlap, like "Google" appears as Goo :) and then the three remaining letters are on top of each other. Obviously, I first made sure that Safari was using Unicode etc. Any idea?

    Thanks in advance!
