Thanks for posting here in the Community, @ben8.
I appreciate the steps you've done to get this working. I'm here to help make sure that your QuickBooks Online (QBO) font display will be back to normal.
I check if there's an ongoing issue about this but there isn't currently one. Since you already tried to use a different browser, let's other steps that can help us isolate this. Try logging into your QBO account using a private browser (Incognito) this time. There are times that the browser is full of frequently accessed page resources, thus causing some errors and/or unusual responses. Here's how:
If it'll work using a private window, go back to your default browser and perform clear cache to remove temporary internet files on your computer. Before doing so, make sure to take note your saved passwords and URLs. Once done, here's a helpful article with the steps on how to perform clear cache: How do I clear my browser cache and temporary Internet files.
That's it! Give this a try and let me know how it goes by leaving a comment below. Please know that I'm only a post away if you have any follow-up questions. Take care and have a good one.
Thanks for your reply, Fritz. It did not help. Right now I am writing this in bold and it looks normal to me, but without bold it looks very thin. However, since there was only one other complaint about this issue in the QB community, it's probably something that I am doing wrong, as opposed to an issue with QB. I also tried changing the screen resolution and general settings, but that also did not help.

It is not just you.
QBO has had this issue since they started, and it is still annoying.
Tried Tech Support today, and was told that the font is a default setting and cannot be changed.
Switching to black font rather than tiny gray in QBO is helpful. Right now it is eye straining. I find the font in QB desktop more user friendly. If you could switch this feature to black instead of gray, that is most appreciated.
Thanks for joining in this thread, ecg2.
I know how important it is to have an option to switch fonts in QuickBooks Online (QBO). While this isn't available in the system, I'll pass along your idea to our Product Developers. They're always looking for proposals to consider on how to improve QBO.
