    I have no idea why the hell this is happening...

    But is really pissing me off.

    Everything, well most things that have words in it are bold. Like, example, the stuff I am typing at this very moment are seen in bold but it isn't set to be at bold. Sometimes, I even see things in Italics as well... Am using FireFox 3.5.3. Still don't know what is causing it.

    Not only in FireFox, but also on my desktop as well. A lot of the things I use, are also in bold. Very annoying >_

    It started just yesterday. Randomly.

    Maybe it is a virus, but would expect my Anti-Virus to detect it (BitDefender). But then, I thought it was one. but took BitDefender off and put Avast. Still nothing detected.

    I tried a bunch of things. But then, the last few things I remember doing were:
    - Installed L4D (not bought. was... arrrred)

    And that's it. L4D works perfectly, but I just can't imagine what could be the cause. And ferrari, I tried that already. Still nothing.

    Doing a Virus Scan.

    I am finding out about FireFox, like if it is set at bold. But weird thing is that in Google, it it set at Italics, but on GBAtemp, things are seen in bold.

    Here's some screenshots:

    Font sizes, are checked. None are set to bold. I downloaded the registry thing. After the Virus Scan is done, I am gonna restart my computer. Then we'll see if it is fixed or not. Hopefully, there is a way to fix this [​IMG]. I don't want to re-install all these things xP

    Mhm... I am gonna re-install FireFox.

    I took off L4D, and now my computer is back to normal. The only thing is that GBAtemp is still in bold...? Everything...

    EDIT: Nyeh. Re-installing never did anything. Now it is just FireFox in bold and Garena has some weird font I've never seen before [​IMG]
