    Undo the changes you made, of course. Put the fonts back.

    If you made the mistake of deleting some of the standard system fonts, particularly those in the System/Library folder, you can get those properly back in place by reinstalling your macOS system.
    In the future, try to avoid messing about inside your System folder :cool:

    I was clearing out free fonts, i havent touched the default system settings. Firefox still think she is using times. This is more of a faulty free font issue rather then me messing with the system.

    Try restoring the fonts using the Font Book application. You may also have to rebuild the font cache, if it isn’t done automatically.

    Assuming we’re not talking about an older version of macOS…you could reinstall the system without removing your apps, files or settings.
