It appears that Firefox and Chrome do not agree on what 'font-weight 600' means.  You might have better luck just making it 'bold'.

More info: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_weight.asp  Note also that Firefox and Chrome do not use the same 'rendering engine' (which is the software that actually draws the page) so some things will be different.  It is next to impossible to get two browsers to 'render' a page Exactly the same.
