You are not following!

On my PC, the checkboxes are NOT checked, except the last checkbox on
the Advanced tab IS checked.  I don't have a language bar in my tray.
The problem is that some Web sites are internationalized and that Gecko
(at least within SeaMonkey 1.1.*) does not have an option to ignore the
requests regarding Asian fonts (or any other non-installed fonts).
