Click to enlarge...

I'm seeing this ONLY in Safari on my Mini — and on my MBP, but not under the icons. Not in Firefox Aurora or Google Chrome. I've check and confirmed language settings in system and Safari prefs, and iCloud settings. Have repaired permissions, restarted, cleared caches and history... No joy.

Any ideas?

Also, I've just enable PhotoStream on both Macs and my iPhone, so shouldn't I see that icon on the iCloud home page as well?

Never mind that second question (PhotoStream icon). Found the answer.

Font conflict?
I've had a bad font do some wacky stuff with the system.

Nope. All fonts are good and no conflicts.

Is this a new issue? Have you perhaps recently installed any software that may have also installed its own fonts?

I'm gonna guess you may have multiple versions of whatever font the app/system wants to use -- not *conflicting* fonts, mind you, just different versions =)

Hmm indeed. File this one under "Go figure". That solved it. Now on to the MBP.

Guess I should've checked the Apple support pages first. But then, you'd be out of a job! grin

Reminds me of the time (back in the early 90's) I was having problems with my Amiga (no snickering, please). When I got to the service center with the machine, the problem was gone. The tech said, "Sometimes they just wanna go for a ride." laugh

If the Safe Boot is what fixed it, you have some sort of font conflict. Safe Boot clears font caches.
