I don't understand why this is happening, I've reset my browser MULTIPLE times and I've also tried to upgrade to IE9 but it fails during installation. This is very irritating as I have a lot of forms to fill out every day for college and I can't even read what I'm writing.
Edit: Not every textbox does this. For example the search engine on this website does not do it and the textbox I am typing in now does not do this. It seems like anything in a form does this.
Edit 2: I've noticed that drop down menus are the same, it's almost like the font has a superscript html tag for some reason.
