    Mozilla 1.4 upgrade wierded my fonts out!

    I used Synaptic to upgrade Mozilla to 1.4, everything works, my prefs are kept, except that the fonts are strange, instead of the fonts that I have installed (and are still there, other apps can use them) I get a choice of things like:
    bitstream-courier-iso8859-1
    adobe-courier-iso8859-1
    etc, all end in an iso number, and my usual fonts are not there.
    Any hints?
    Thanks,

    Try searching the debian user list I have seen a few post in there about problems with fonts in mozilla after an upgrade.

    Thanks, I tried there, but couldn't find this problem. I wonder if there is somewhere in Mozilla where I have to point it to the font directory to use? It seems like it has the wrong one?

    You may have to uninstall mozilla and reinstall it. But I would try do the following first:

    apt-get update
    apt-get -s dist-upgrade ; this will show you what is upgraded
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    or if you don't want to upgrade everything try

    apt-get install mozilla
