Ubuntu / Firefox / Incorrect font display (wrong style, no bold, no underline, etc)

Users of Ubuntu and Firefox may notice after installing some applications that fonts no longer appear correctly in Firefox (though they may appear correctly in some Java, etc, apps). Such issues include:

  • No bold
  • No other styles (italics, etc)
  • Wrong font / size

This seems to happen when the packages ttf-symbol-replacement and ttf-tahoma-replacement are installed. Simply uninstalling these two packages should resolve the issue.
