Hi, i have a small problem with Safari rendering pages. Google is the best example, it seems that most bolded text overlaps itself, it does it on just about any page with text that is bold.

Have a look at the attached image to get a better idea...

Anyone know how to fix this?

Is it the latest Safari?

If so, maybe sink around in the menus for font size and settings.

Does it happen with other programs or just Safari? Does it happen with FireFox?

It's the latest Safari, doesn't do it in any other browser, ive looked around the settings everywhere, reset safari, emptied cache, just about everything i can think of :(

I just tried changing the font size it displays, fixes the problem, but i dont want it one size smaller or bigger, i want it how the page was intended to be displayed.

Start up into Open Firmware by pressing and holding the Command-Option-O-F key combination during startup.
At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-nvram
Press Return.
When prompted for your password, enter it and press the Return key. It responds OK.
At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-all
Press Return.

Do a spotlight search for them! Try entering "Safari" and it will show all the files associated.

I have used the 'delete plist file' trick before but for some reason it completely slipped my mind.

So simple! *Loves his mac* hehe
