Viasat Browser Fonts

Suddenly (post Microsoft update?) the fonts in my Viasat browser are very faint and wispy.  Some but not all web page rendering does not look right.  Even the menu text is hard to read and appears very thin.  Oddly, Windows Edge looks just fine. Yeah, I've done the TrueType tuneup, but to no avail.  Has anyone else seen this problem?

This may be due to a problem with a font installed on your computer.  Here is a post from someone with a similar issue who resolved it by deleting the Roboto font.  https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/YiqK1z_PpMs  After deleting the font, clear the browser cache and then restart the browser.

David, Does Viasat version based on Chrome look to Google apps (Earth run on my machine) enough like Chrome browser for functionality?

MS forced update snafu:The wifi switch on an HP Elitebook 8440p stopped responding after latest Micro$not forced update. Had to try HP for new drivers, n/g, so looked at Intel and found set from Win 7 that returned power on/off functionality to really bad switch. Touch sensitive bar above keyboard doesn't always due as expected. But it is due to Win10 which HP does not recommend using on this pos lappie.
