Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? Error messages?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

That looks like you are having a problem with fonts. And this is on all websites?

Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

You can try different default fonts and temporarily disable website fonts to test the selected default font.

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Advanced
    [ ] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

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

You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.

Note that this is not about the font-family CSS rule, but about the font that Firefox actually uses as shown in the Font tab.

I've tried it already. is that it?

Can you check what font Firefox tries to use like I posted above because it is possible that Firefox uses a font that isn't working properly?

I think that is it
