Thank you for reporting this issue. I have added this as a feature request
(#657733) to fix in some future release as we provide improved font handling
for various character sets.

Subject: Re: [Fire-talk] Hey everyone
I've discovered what is happening. It isn't actually bolding the fonts
or displaying them incorrectly, it is just choosing to display a
different version of the normal font. Normally, if the chosen font
doesn't support the Japanese characters, it defaults to "Hiragino Kaku
Gothic Pro" with a typeface of W3. For some reason, Fire is defaulting
to the correct font but with a typeface of W6. This makes it much
thicker than normal. iChat and Proteus both seem to use the W3 font.
I'm not sure how they decided that.
Now, if my chosen font is a Japanese font, then it displays normally
because it supports the characters. It's only when it has to default to
a Japanese font that it messes up.
I'm not sure how to go about fixing this, but I hope this information
helps you track down the problem.
