Why is Firefox on Mac rendering <textarea> content in italics on multiple sites?


For some reason, any <textarea> on a website is rendering the text within it in italic. This is very annoying. I have checked it on multiple websites, including the W3 Schools. I don't know what happened. Is it a setting in Firefox (or Firebug) or could it be an extension messing with things?
