Somehow I've managed to make my browser text bold. It's the same in FF and IE:



I want it back like it is on my other PCs:



Any idea what I've done?

It's not that. The text is bold, not zoomed. And it's only on some sites too - this forum text is normal.

freitasm: Have you updated system fonts?


Not intentionally. I recently installed CS6, could that have done it?

freitasm: Yep, if it installed fonts...



What package do I need to install to revert them? I've already tried one, and it didn't make any difference.

I have no idea - not my strong area. Get a VM and install CS6 there and see if it affects that as well. Uninstall and see if it reverts.

That text on Google is Arial so installing extra fonts shouldn't have affected it, unless you actually replaced Arial with something else.

I took the Arial from my other PC and 'installed' it, overwriting the existing one. Now browsers appear to be normal. Hopefully this won't mess up whatever changed it in the first place.
