Recently Chrome started displaying very strange error messages when it cannot find a page. It's quite random, it doesn't always does it and it seems to only affect the bolded parts of the text.

If I check the code in the console, the page unscrambles itself although the letters are still randomly spaced out. Does anybody know what could be causing this? Is it a known bug?

This looks like a corrupted font. Try reinstalling the affected font.

The gibberish text could be due to Chrome's language settings. Click on Chrome -> Settings -> Show advanced settings... -> Languages and spell-checker settings. Select the language on the left pane, and click on Display Google Chrome in this language on the right pane, and click OK to apply the changes.
