Fonts lost in compose mail, gmail, firefox after using Bleachbit

I used Bleach bit. I think that Fire fox , Gmail was open at the time. Now I have lost comic script. It says that it is there but it is not I am trying another font now but it is not working either and it is the same on Thunderbird. How do I get back comic or add a new script?

I am using Ubuntu 11 with Classic desktop, I think that that means Gnome. The operating system with this fault is on my hard drive. I also have Ub1104 on a flash drive where I have not used bleachbit and comic is still there.

Fonts don't work here either

Whatever fonts you want to use can be in your ~/.fonts directory. If you don't have it, then create it:

mkdir ~/.fonts
Put your fonts in that directory (which is hidden without running ls -a ~/:

cp fontname.ttf ~/.fonts
Now, since I don't know whether or not you are using Gnome, KDE, Openbox, etc, the next part may be hit or miss. If you are using Gnome, run this command and your fonts will work when you reopen the browser (you may need to run the command as root, but I don't believe so):

fc-cache -f -v

Which Linux distribution and version (e.g., Ubuntu 11.04)? Which desktop environment (GNOME 3, KDE 4)? Have you tried rebooting the operating system?

So far all I can say is that I cannot think of any normal way for BleachBit to delete any fonts. For example, it doesn't have any rules that look at the directory ~/.fonts
