Default All Font Are Bold

All the fonts are showing as bold and when a font should be bold it is not. (see below) Running Mac OS 10.14.1 and Safari 12.0.1. Works fine in other browsers, Chrome, Firefox.

TY

Solution:

After looking at Verdana in Font Book I noticed that two versions were installed. One inside the default /Library/Fonts folder which had been disabled and one inside /Library/Fonts/Microsoft. Font Book "resolved" these duplicates (I assume when Mojave was installed) by disabling the default /Library/Fonts file. Once I manually re-enabled the files (Right-click on "off" font > Enable) they were appearing again in Safari. This also applies to any other font in /Library/Fonts/Microsoft, which I believe is needed for Office 2016 for Mac.




I'm still unsure as to why Chrome and Firefox (and other software such as Sketch) we're able to use the file, either they were using the file in /Library/Fonts/Microsoft or they simply ignore the on/off status.
