Hi FredMcD

Just tried this and it didn't seem to fix the issue - it happened when I upgraded macOS Sierra to the Developer Preview, the system font which I'm sure is used on Firefox headers as well seems to work fine everywhere else.

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer) with this element selected.

You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector. Set devtools.fontinspector.enabled to true on the about:config page to enable the Font tab.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
