Does that happen on every site, or just specific ones, or specific kinds of 
sites?  It's probably due to those sites specifying the fonts you installed 
as one of their preferred fonts.  All you could do is ask them to change the 
site so that you can pick your own fonts, maybe force your browser to use its 
own fonts, if it has the option, or use something like junkbuster to change 
the sites content as it's downloaded.
