I've noticed that on some websites like Google or Startpage, the Cyrillic font is bold. I've chosen my own font in the Firefox options, and it applies to every website I use, except Google and Startpage. A strange thing I also noticed is that the font goes back to normal and isn't bold when I go to Google Images, but on everything else from Google Search, it's bold. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

You can check for font related issues.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.

I checked the Font tab, and the bold font I mentioned seems to be Arial Black. I haven't selected Arial Black in the font options on Firefox, but it still somehow appears.
