userstyles.org - Kill Helvetica

Many Windows users of Firefox, including myself, suffer from strange Helvetica font issues. Firefox does not appear to render the font correctly and makes sites which use the font (e.g. Digg, Twitter, etc.) very difficult to read.

This style simply overrides Helvetica Neue and tells Firefox to use the local Arial font instead.

See http://www.keyvan.net/2010/10/helvetica-on-firefox/ for more information.

This problem has been reported in various places:

To use this style, install Firefox and Stylish. If you already have Stylish, make sure this site is allowed to run JavaScript.

(Though installing Stylish is recommended, if your browser supports user scripts, you can also install this style as a user script.)
