My Twitter account is displaying everything in bold. It's only on my home computer; my work one is fine. I have emptied my cache and deleted cookies but nothing is working. How am I able to fix this? It's driving me crazy.

Is your window possibly zoomed in?

Does it do it in Firefox, Safari and Chrome?

Corrupted font cache?

That is my guess, too. Onyx can fix that.

Try rebooting your computer.

On the off chance that you're zoomed in a bit, press Control-0 (that's control-zero) which should zoom you out to normal magnification.

You just fixed a mysterious display problem I was having with ask.mefi on my office PC. Thank you!

Oh God. I'm an idiot. I can't believe I didn't try restarting. Fixed.

You can also use Cntrl+ or Cntrl- (that's a plus or minus, using your keypad or the ones to the right of the top number row) to zoom in and out.
