Threads with bold titles are threads that you haven't read yet.

Yes, that is right. I donno what's going on over on your side, but bolded threads mean they are unread. This is also indicated by the open envelope icon and the little arrow next to the thread title that you can click to take you directly to the unread posts.

Unless you cleared cookies and temp internet files. Then they may show up as Bold again.
