[Solved]Opera suddenly uses italics only

  • This afternoon, after I turned my computer back on after lunch, Opera suddenly started using italics only. Eg in FaceBook -- every thing is in italics. Using latest version of Opera, Windows 8 pro operating system, screen font set to arial. This morning everything was fine. Totally bizarre and irritating. Any help greatly appreciated.

  • Have you tried a reboot?

    Are fonts settings in settings > Websites ok?

  • Yes tried reboot and checked the font settings. I suspect a reinstall might fix the problem but due to Opera's pathetic handling of bookmarks, I'm not keen to do this. That is, until I've somehow saved them.

  • Check that specific font in another program. Twice I've had (I believe) a Windows update lose the default font and had the same result.

  • Fixed it. Closed Opera. Uninstalled Arial font from windows. Opened Opera -- checked it was using a different font. No problems. Closed Opera. Reinstalled Arial font. Opened Opera. No problems. Back to normal. 🙂
