Often when changing pages I get a box that pops up and says "This page uses fonts that need to be installed. Do you want these fonts to be downloaded? Clicking yes or no seems to gave the same effect-nothing. I'm using IE browser and have run malware and virus checks with no help. Any ideas?

I use FX with private browsing. If I open certain sites, there is a notice in the bottom bar that Google Fonts are loading. I see no listings in NoScript or Ghostery about Google fonts - just the notice that they are loading.

The page might be written with Google Docs and IE needs permission to use them.

If the error is associated with a code number then I suggest to google that error number or phrase directly to a search engine page.
