Try these steps they will help

Open Font Book

goto select all fonts in middle column

goto edit menu and click on resolve duplicates

These are more than likey to be there as 10.4.9 & 10.4.10 caused duplicates and these need to be removed to stop unwanted problems

Now select the fonts you added and validate them also check they didn't get duplicated which at odd times happens.

Now the best thing to do is restart this will then pick up all the new fonts and all apps should then be abale to use them.

If the browser stays the same go into the prefs for it and change it back to whatever is originally was.

Remove the fonts and go about adding them one by one to find the offender.

Font management is a big nasty area in OSX.

Here's an Apple doc (discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=607630) to give you some pretty critical info if you are starting to expand your font horizons.

EDIT: Be very careful with letting software "repair" or "resolve" anything regarding fonts. Read up on the net for people experiences with whatever process you may be wanting to undertake.
