Google fonts not working in Chrome (googles browser)

Recommended Posts

I am using the Google Fonts plugin from the Pagelines store for custom fonts on my website. Unfortunately, the fonts I have chosen for my website display weird on Google Chrome browser... interesting since both google fonts and google browser are... google. Anyway, wondering if there is a setup step that I missed or something. Please help.

Hey Dave! Nice site! Love it! So I checked things out in FF and Chrome and can't spot anything out of the ordinary. What type of problems are you seeing? Sweet! Nick

All of the text displays weird in google chrome. Here is a screen shot. [img]http://epicgeniusmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/epicscreen-660x515.png[/img] Notice the [A] all over the place? Also the fonts in the nav are all wonky.

It's weird... cause I am looking at it in the same version of Chrome 18.0.1025.151 and I get the weird fonts.

Hi Dave, I am seeing the fonts correctly also, are you using Windows or OSX?

Please search our forums, before posting!

On a Mac. 10.7.3 I upgraded the browser from 18.0.1025.151 beta to 18.0.1025.162 and now it works... It's just weird that Simon was on the same browser as me before I upgraded and everything looked good to him.

I found out that the problem was with Font Explorer X Pro (a program to manage my fonts). Turns out if I have the font activated on my computer, every character will display as I mentioned [A].
