text font not going to web page defaults
Firefox appears to be using the "options" font type and color, rather than the web page font and color, despite the box being checked to allow the web page font to override the options font

The preferences are saving - I did change the font preference from Times Roman to Arial, and that did change and did save. The problem is that the web page text loads using that font, not the original font and text color on the web page, despite the box being checked "to allow web page to chose their own font". The same web page does show the original font & color if opened in IE10.
I did do a full reset yesterday and that did not help
Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own fonts.
- Edit > Preferences > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced: [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"
You can check the gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled pref on the about:config page and reset user set (bold) gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled prefs via the right-click context menu to the default value to make sure that you allow fonts to be downloaded.
Thanks Moses, I did get into about:config and that was set to non-bold with "default; boolean; true", so that seems correct, so still puzzled...
