Ubuntu: Ubuntu doesn't display fonts properly on some sites like Facebook


I had the same issue on OpenSUSE. ms fonts is installed. Tried with the following 2 browsers:

  • Firefox
  • Chrome

enter image description here


Are you on 16.04 ? If yes, give this command a try

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer  

There will be an EULA for which you should give " yes ".


Well, this is embarrassing but the language setting in facebook was set to something like Urdu (I don't know how) which caused the issue.
