browser all of a sudden writing in italics

Q: browser all of a sudden writing in italics

all of a sudden my browser and windows98 is writing in `italics`.

i was doing so heavy uninstalling of downloaded softwares,just want to go back to normal writing.

Preferred Solution: browser all of a sudden writing in italics

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: browser all of a sudden writing in italics

When you say your browser, which browser? internet explorer?
When you say and windows 98, do you mean that everywhere that text is, it is in italics? even the names of items on the desktop.

say for example, you go into your browser and type in the addy bar: about:this is a test. then it should load the text "this is a test." is that text right there in italics? if it is only certain sites, then could just be faulty coding.

also, have you restarted your computer since this started happening? I find it unlikely, but i suppose its possible that the computer skipped the code {/i} and so was never told to turn italics off and keeps it on for everything, however i'd assume that it should only apply to the page being viewed at the time...
*this is only my opinion and speculations, dont just take my word for it

Well I noticed this about a week and a half ago and it is quite annoying.
Ive tried reinstalling Firefox, but it stayed the same.

How do I fix this?

A:Italics and Bold Writing in Firefox(also in IE)

Hmm... odd, but check here


Tools > Options > content > Fonts & Colours

it seems that this may have been changed to italics. If this is not the case, run a full antispy and virus scan with a good program, or use the trend housecall [http://housecall.trendmicro.com/]. This may take some time but please let the whole scan run through.

Hopefully someone can help me out here because I really have no idea what settings I mucked with or what changed here. A couple of days ago I started noticing that fonts on different webpages (cnn.com, gmail.com, etc..) were showing up in italics. Basically, anything on a website that isn't bolded is italicized. I've searched all over to try and fix this and haven't come up with any solutions.

This is happening in both IE & Firefox so I'm stumped as to what I changed or how to get it back.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Browser fonts in italics?

I got this from IE6 HELP menu
To display Web page text in a different font

In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
On the General tab, click Fonts.
In the Web page font and Plain text font lists, click the fonts you want.
Maybe you unchecked something on that page, looks simple enough to fix it.

Hello everyone, I'm having some code issues while doing screen adaptation in IE11, I would like to ask for your help. I am building a website in wordpress, and I need to make some adaptive adjustments for IE 11 browser. I tried various hacks and
I found:

   @media screen and (-ms-high-contrast:active),(-ms-high-contrast:none){

The method shown above is the only method that works for IE11, but with this method, I can?t do other screen adaptations for IE11.

Maybe hijacked?
-Browser redirecting
-sometimes "somebody" is pushing the browser back and forward buttons at least 100 times a minute
-Text is coming from somewhere i.e. to Firefox Google search box, sometimes there is whole sentences (somebody is writing), sometimes just letters are coming.

When I ran Hijackthis, it did not go through at first. HJT adviced me to run it as an administrator...there was also mentioned that maybe HJT is also infected...

I ran AdAware & SpyBot, no help.

Hi. I was surfing around and my browser and the other window that was open at the time shut down completely. Thinking I might have picked up virus, I went to Trend Micro and hit Hijack This and am doing a House Call scan right now. When I reopened my browser, only the current tab would work and the rest of them wouldn't respond. I closed it down completely and started a new one without saving the tabs and it seems to work now, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post the log and see if anything seems out of the ordinary.

Approximately a month ago I noticed the frequency that ads appeared increase, not only did they begin to appear in unusual places but on top of other ads swell. On top of this, every so often when I click a link or type a new URL I will be redirected to a site ( which I don't think looks entirely legit) telling me to update either Google chrome or adobe flash player. The general speed of my PC also seems to have reduced.
If anyone has any info or help, it'd be much appreciated.

Hi , few months ago i had a problem with constant BSODs , reporting the same error as these now : "page fault in non paged area" . I reinstalled windows and had no problems since , until today.

Hello everyone! I'm new here and this is my first post. I noticed the other day that all the font on my laptop's Internet has suddenly changed to italics, and I did not do this. I don't know why it happened. I'm the only person who is ever on my laptop, so no one else could have done this.

I managed to change the font via Tools>Internet opinions>Font on the browser, but any text that is in a subject field is still in italics. My default font was Arial, which I liked, but when Arial was selected it displayed the font name in italics. I then switched it to Lucida Sans, which is okay, but I don't like it that much. And again, text within subject fields is still in italics.

Any help on why this happened and how to fix it would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

I wonder if you have inadvertently changed your font in IE.

When you are in IE, go Tools>Internet Options. On the "General" Tab, there is a "Font" button near the bottom. Check it out and see what is chosen for your font.

The font that you choose in that option will not work for all web pages. That might explain why you get italics for some web pages and not others.

The dictionary is for spelling, not formatting. If you want to auto-format certain words, use the autotext feature.

Try this:

Type "MyWord".
Select the text.
Format it.
Select it again.
Hit Insert-->Autotext-->New.

Or, just use Find/Replace.

Suddenly all my text is changed to italics. Whether I check the properties of a file or browse the internet or check my mails, everything is appearing in italics.

Reading some solutions on the internet, it seems as if the Arial font goes missing. But my system still has it and I can use Arial in MS Word.

Please help me with the issue, the italics font is really annoying me.

And when I was trying to solve the problem manually, I went into the Personalization menu (in Control Panel) and checked whether everything was normal. No option had 'Bold' or 'Italics' activated. I just clicked on 'Apply' and that made things even bad for me.
Firstly just the font was italic, but now the three buttons, 'Minimize', 'Maximize' and 'Close' have become smaller, even though the screen resolution (1366*768) is the same.

Please help me, thank you.

If you are filling in info in a table in Word for example, and you have your headings across the top in bold and italics, how do you deselect those options when you fill in the data ? I know you can highlight the text when you are finished typing to deselect bold and italics, but is there another way before you start entering the data ?

You can highlight the rest of the empty table and change those options before typing the text.

(2) I purchased and downloaded a program "RecCure Pro" which supposedly fixed over 4000 problems with my system. It did not solve my problem plus I now have the problem that text in Word documents and in some of my programs are in Italics. The Italics button in Word isalso inactive now, I cannot get rid of the Italic text.

I have Windows 7 Professional

Please help!

I don't know if anyone here had the same problem as me, but when using Microsoft Office, a particular word document, whenever I choose a sentence to make it bold, it becomes automatically bold+italics. However, the italics sign is not clicked and therefore I cannot remove the Italics.

Any help on how I can solve this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Yeah, it's a problem that showed up like 1 month ago, I'm not really sure what could've triggered it, but now it's got into my nerves.
I downloaded a registry fix for Windows 7 fonts, but I guess IE has nothing to do with it.

Some screenies:

Youtube, Google, Facebook and Twitter aren't giving me this kind of problem, by the way.

I do not have a restore point for this event
