Well we all hate building websites for outdated browsers like IE9, but unfortunately it has to be done. I just found out that my company website isn’t displaying correctly in IE 9 because of the Google fonts. You can see what I’m referring to here: http://mecsoft.com/Ie9_fonts.jpg
Any suggestions on how to fix it? Google Analytics tells me that we have about 15% of our traffic using IE9. so definitely sufficient enough to fix this issue asap.
We’ll need to take a look at the site live to inspect it and see whats going on. You may want to also try loading the font up on the Google fonts site in IE9 to see if its just the way google renders that font.
Edit: Realize I can see the url in your screenshot and took a look. The menu is using HelveticaNeue, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial for the font-family in the menu and my guess is that your font file for that font on your local machine isn’t working with IE. Try re-installing the font file on your computer as well as checking the site on another computer (it looks the same on Chrome vs IE9 on my machine for example).
Additionally, you can just change the font-family for the menu directly to Arial if you wanted to.
