As seen in this image below, bold in markdown is not working. Below, the lines "What I want" and "What I've tried" should be bold. For instance, this is not bold for me. It looks slightly different, but it's definitely not bold. When I inspect element, it says that the element has a
bold, but it doesn't look like it. Italic, and other styling works as expected. This problem does not appear in other browsers. I am using version
43.0.2357.130 m. My only extensions are cache killer (for clearing cache automatically), and postman - REST client (it fakes, get and post http requests, used for security testing). I have tried disabling both of them, and still have the issue.
This has been annoying, and I've been living with it for many months. If there is a solution I can apply, or if it is something stackoverflow can fix, it would be much appreciated.
There was an extension I installed a long time ago, and uninstalled because I never used it that might be the cause since this seems so un-reproducible. It was an extension for reading markdown files, like a github readme. I am sure it is uninstalled. Still, perhaps this may still be affecting stackoverflow's bold in posts. I would think not, because the css defines the elements font-weight as bold, but it's my only thought.
