    Default Font problem on Paypal website


    I am having problems were both Firefox and Opera display an Asian font.
    Konqueror displays the page fine. Is there a way to search for damaged
    fonts?

    By the way, the page displays fine in my wife's account in both Firefox
    and Opera.

    I get this;

    Code:
    --------------------
    请确保正确输入您的电子邮件地址和密码。
    --------------------


    Instead of this;

    Code:
    --------------------
    Please make sure you enter your email address and password correctly.

    Ok, I've tried

    Code:
    --------------------
    sudo fonts-config

    --------------------

    and

    Code:
    --------------------
    fc-cache
    --------------------


    I reset the fonts in Firefox and Opera, cleared the cache in both. The
    problem also affects Kmail. Any Paypal email displays in a foreign
    character. The odd thing is that parts of the page are in English.

    When installing fonts you're asked if you want them to be available
    System wide or just for the current user.

    As your wife's account works you might want to check if she has any
    'personal fonts' installed.
    You can do this by going to *Desktop settings* (KDE "start" menu, under
    favourites by default) and then going to *Fonts*.
    In the dropdown box select *Personal fonts*.

    If there are any fonts showing up you'll need to install those under
    your own account as well, or reinstall that font system wide.

    Thanks for the tips . . . turns out it is application specific. If I
    rename my opera and firefox profiles, the font problem goes away. I
    tried clearing the caches but that didn't solve it. I wonder where they
    store the font information.

    Off to solve my other issues . . .
