Attached image bold.png
See attached screenshot, from latest nightly on macOS. The gfx.webrender.all pref is modified and should show up as bold, but it doesn't. The glyph spacing is wider, as though it were bolded, but the glyph weight is the same as non-bolded.
(This is on a MBP running 10.13.6 with Intel graphics)

(I couldn't believe my eyes and didn't ask on IRC, sorry! Like a robot I just replied how to enable WebRender.)
