That looks like STIX fonts instead of cmr. According to the MathJax site settings, both STIX and cm fonts are available, but cm fonts should be preferred.

Edit: see this: https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/178#issuecomment-2424202
"OS X 10.7 (Lion) ships with the STIX fonts installed, and MathJax will use those in preference to its web-based fonts."

Try using FontBook to disable STIX fonts. (Note that I'm not a Mac user.)

Thanks for looking that up. I had a hunch that maybe my computer was just displaying it using the wrong fonts, but I did not have the knowledge or savvy to know specifically what those fonts were and what to do about it. I opted Font Book and searched for STIX and disabled all of the font families that came up. The new result looks like this:

It certainly looks like computer modern. Does it seem comparable to how LaTeX looks in your browser?

Thanks again! :smile:
