  1. All Chromium based browsers font has changed, for various websites


    How in the world this has happened I don't know, but the font for Google, Gmail, Facebook, BBC, Daily Mail, and some other sites has suddenly changed to a crappy tiny one. But it effects ALL Chromium based browsers, so Chrome, Cent, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, etc. It doesn't effect Firefox, Edge, or other apps. Also it doesn't happen on another PCs Chrome synced to my same profile. Also it happens in Incognito mode too. When I check the fonts in Chrome's settings they are identical to my other PC which is fine. What could be causing this ? Oddly though it is not every font. But any of those above mentioned websites and the font just looks odd, inspecting the font code shows the same as with Firefox, yet the font shown on screen is different. Youtube, Reddit, and Twitter fonts seem fine too. So I am presuming it depends on the font the website is using.

    For instance, here on Tenforums, the text I am typing now is totally wrong font, it is tiny and poor quality, but if I go to Firefox and go to a post here too, it is perfect and clear and big. Also, I have now just clicked on "Switch Editor to WYSIWYG Mode" button here, in Chrome, and the text is now perfect and increased in size and matches the correct one in Firefox. This whole thing is crazy.

    See attached image for what I mean by tiny poor font.

    I don't have chromium (or chrome) installed so I may not be able to help.

    try changing from within chromium

    • Click on the Wrench icon and select Options
    • In the Basics tab, click on Make Chromium my default browser in the
      Default browser section.
