This started happening a few days ago and I can't figure it out. When using Chrome, any text with font-family Helvetica or 'Helvetica Neue' always render in a super heavy/bold font. For example, facebook now looks like this:
It only happens in Chrome. Firefox/IE work fine. It only seems to effect Helvetica fonts. Other fonts or no font-family defined render normally. When I switched computers the strange font actually appeared on the second computer as well making me think it's in a Chrome setting somewhere that stays with my account. Nothing in the Chrome settings/Show Advanced Settings/Web Content seems to effect it at all. When I copy and paste the text from Chrome into Word it renters normally and has Helvetica listed as the font. Although strangely when I choose the fonts drop-down Helvetica-Black is listed but not Helvetica.
