Use a different text rendering engine
Firefox uses the wrong text rendering engine. That's because bitmap fonts don't work in Windows 10 in Firefox. They work in Windows XP and Windows 7 though, which is why I really want to install one of these operating systems.
Notepad works perfectly... You could just use the same rendering engine as Notepad and all problems are gone!!!

I think this is the same issue as your previous threads:
As you know, Support volunteers can't change Firefox. To submit feature suggestions, you could use one or more of the following (depending on whether you want a suggestion box or a discussion):
Indeed it's the same issue as the second bullet but not the first.
Try to disable hardware acceleration. I'm pretty sure that DirectWrite doesn't allow bitmap fonts.
