    I recently installed a ton of fonts. Over 1k and now system wide random apps have random fonts. For example random people on my msn messenger buddy list type with different fonts from my computer. They all are using standard fonts though, but I'm getting crazy scribbled fonts from all of the fonts I installed. As well as safari. When I use safari, some websites use random fonts on my system for links and then normal fonts for text. I checked the fonts in the appearance section of the a safari preferences and everything has a normal font. Also in Mail, random emails get random fonts as well.

    How can I fix this or delete all of the fonts I installed that day.

    Have you restarted? Maybe try using Font Book to resolve your duplicates (from the Edit menu). Just as a small tip, it's usually better to install fewer fonts more regularly rather than dump a thousand of them on your system all at once. :eek:

    Also worth Vaildating the fonts, from the the File new menu as when i installed a lot recently there were a few corrupt fonts.
