Nope. Sorry. Must be a helicopter thing :twisted: :lol:

So, for the past few weeks I have been seeing the following on Chrome. The number "9" does not show up at all and is shown with the "-" key :shock: :o :(

Have checked the extensions but nothings seems to suggest a problem. Any thoughts?

Yep, use firefox.
Chrome is a rubbish browser with terrible compatibility and seems to have permanent emotional difficulties rendering websites consistently.

Can't change browser as work has set Chrome as the default using various business apps and documents [-( So, would like to resolve the Chrome issue if possible =D> and not have to swap between two browsers =P~

Managed to find a fix for this. Has something to do with duplicate fonts. Used a font manager programme and uninstalled all duplicate fonts. Seems to have fixed the problem :D :D :D
