Firefox Japanese Fonts Messed Up

I am using Firefox on Debian 10 (78.6.1esr) and my Japanese fonts got messed up after I installed a new font on the system. I installed the font into my Debian user folder, and it applied to everything as the default font. The fix was pretty easy, I simply removed it and everything want back to normal, except Firefox. Firefox for some reason is the only thing insistent on continuing to use the font, despite my font settings in Firefox set to use a more standard font. It wouldn't be so bad but the font in question doesn't have all the characters so the display is rather hideous in some cases. I tried to reset Firefox by renaming ~/.mozilla/firefox to ~/.mozilla/firefox.old, but the font remains. I've ran with it for about a month but I cannot take it anymore and have spent a days worth of hours trying to fix it.

I've attached on image showing the display, and another showing my font settings. about:config does not show the offending font.

Thanks!

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?

whenever i install fonts onto my computer, firefox changes many elements in many webpages to those fonts. this is exteremely frustrating, because i install wacky fonts, so i end up not being able to read anything… in the omnibar the font is set to what i installed 2 times ago. so right now its "EPSON 太丸ゴシック体B". heres a pic: https://i.imgur.com/aJca75i.png

but for other things like japanese, i get this https://i.imgur.com/BundcfM.png (its the font i just downloaded) if you can read japanese then ull know that its completely illegible unless if u know cursive very well inspect element for this cursive font gives `font-family: "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;` and if i hover over it the popup shows the font as EPSON 太丸ゴシック体B (which it also shouldnt show…), but it actually renders the cursive font………

all my font settings in about:config are reset to default but nothing changed

please help
