    Can anyone tell me why my browsers are rendering sites strangely? the spacing between elements and text is all messed up: line heights are too large, text flowing behind images etc.

    It's not limited to a single browser--all of them are doing this. It's something with my computer, because the other stations don't have this problem.

    Help plz :hs:

    This must've been it. I had 3000+ personal fonts that I loaded onto fontbook and somehow that fucked everything up. I deleted them from fontbook and everything went back to normal :bowdown:
