Chrome and Firefox shows a very annoying font on many blog websites, while the same websites display the proper font on other PCs (on Chrome and Firefox).

Here is a screenshot:

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. Chrome Version 31.0.1650.57 m and Firefox 25.0. The websites should display the normal font which is default specified in their website or browsers' default. Please help me with this.

Can you please edit your question and give us more details? Like, what operating system you use, what versions of the browsers, how the websites are supposed to look like, if it happens on all sites or just particular websites, etc? –  slhck Nov 20 '13 at 17:21
    
Which OS? Have you tried removing any custom fonts you've added to the system? What font does the page code/CSS say it's trying to use? What exactly do you expect them to look like (can you give us an example site to check for ourselves)? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 20 '13 at 17:22

That is NOT a standard Windows 7 font. You've most likely overwritten a Windows system font with this odd-ball one.

The site in question is styled to use the "Georgia" font, which is a standard Windows 7 font.
