How do I uninstall Netflix?
 
Hi, it is me again (I know I am a noob). I've installed Netflix using this package http://sourceforge.net/projects/post...xplayer.tar.gz and it somehow it messed with my fonts on Firefox. This is how it looks (facebook as an example):
Before (it is the only screenshot I have):

After:

It doesn't look bad on the screenshot but it is HORRIBLE tor read. Does anybody knows how to fix it? Either by removing Netflix (and all the Wine-crap it installed) or fixing the fonts.

EDIT: Actually fixing the fonts would be better because I would still like to use Netflix (it is a bit choppy but it works)

Firefox has a built-in way of selecting fonts (Edit/Preferences/Content/Fonts & Colors).
Also, depending on your desktop environment, you can change font "hinting" in Antialias settings.

I know, I have done that. But after Netflix installation a part of my font configuration is being ignored and it got replaced by who knows what.

It might help if we knew about your desktop environment --KDE??
I know WINE installs Microsoft fonts, and maybe, since Netflix uses the web browser,
those fonts are getting mixed in somehow. I would start from the basics and have a look
at this great page by LQ member DuganChen http://duganchen.ca/writings/slackware/fonts/

Configuring fonts in any Linux can be quite hairy since there are about 10,000 ways to do it.
Another thing that makes it tricky is that WINE is not part of Slackware proper.

Are you sure you installed fontforge and webcore-fonts? It seems from your 1st post that you
did not install WINE first but wine stuff came in with Netflix player.

I would start with a proper Slackbuild of WINE in place and then add in the netflix afterwards.

and / or have a look at "pipelight"

but a working install of wine for YOUR OS and "winetricks"
install the Microsoft Fonts ( should be in wine ? maybe ?)
then the netflix desktop and custom built windows version of firefox

or

run netflix on windows 7
