for some reason the font changes frequently on its own, and it only happens in certain websites like wikipedia, baidu..etc...and those fonts are really hard to read i had to enlarge it really big in order to read...can someone help me? is there a font option somewhere i can change it back? or is it a bug...?

Hm...I had my font change after a visit to Wikimedia (an offshoot of Wikipedia, I think). I had to change my video resolution, and reset my monitor to get it back.

But you said it changes when you go to wikipedia...

To change your resolution, go into control panel (if you are using windows), display, settings, advanced , monitor. Sorry, it was refresh rate I meant, not resolution. I set my resolution for the highest rate allowable for my monitor.

For my monitor, I have a reset button on the side. I believe it resets to default settings.

I can't guarantee that's what did the trick. But I tried everything else I could think of, so it could have been a combination of all of them.

I only noticed the font change after I had reset the refresh rate and reset the monitor.

Try going to tools-->options-->content-->fonts & colours , play with the advanced settings, including whether pages can choose their own fonts, and see if anything helps your problem.
