Steps to reproduce:

I loaded up google and typed in anything into the search bar. This is with all addons and extensions turned off and a fresh profile. This does NOT occur in Safe Mode, however.

Actual results:

It was way too bold.

Expected results:

It.. shouldn't have been.

If it doesn't occur in safe mode, so the culprit is likely an add-on or a theme.
Disable all add-ons and enable them one by one to find the culprit.

I did that. No, seriously. I had every single add-on and theme disabled before I filed this bug.

Safe mode disables add-ons, themes, HWA and some JS engine stuff. If Google looks normal in safe mode, there is a an issue in on of these "compartments".

Are you sure the page is displayed with the default zoom level (ctrl+0)?

Yes. It's still bold.

Surely an issue with your computer because it's clear Google doesn't display its homepage in bold. Install the add-on 'fontinfo' (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fontinfo/), select a line you think it's in bold, right click and select 'Show fonts in selction'.

What does it say?

Arial Bold.

I've.. fixed it. It turns out that when I reinstalled the fonts, it didn't actually reinstall. As such, I've reinstalled it again and the font is now Arial. Sorry to waste people's time.
