Sometimes some texts in Firefox looks corrupted (see screnshot) Seems that it is a font issue because I can copy corrupted text and it is ok in buffer. Other browsers display same pages correctly.

This can be caused by a corrupted font or a font that Firefox can't access.

You can right-click and select "Inspect" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
