Is it possible to make an option in user prefs to turn off seeing code text in bold for people who aren't used to or want to read it as a bold text?
Here's what I see in FF4 on Windows XP SP3

You have Consolas font installed, and since SO stylesheet specifies it explicitly in the
font-family chain, it gets picked up before any other. If you really want to change it, make an use of a User CSS functionality (Stylish extension for Firefox, native in Opera, I don't know about others). But it's a fine font, really (you could also remove it completely, but that's a bit of a drastic solution).
I wouldn't want the preference chain to be changed, in any case.
