Web sites not displaying correctly - text is gobbledygook
I am having problems viewing some web sites using Firefox 111.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.3.1.
It isn't one specific web site, but a number of sites on which I see persistently see the same problem - jumbled, meaningless characters in place of the text. I have attached images of what I am seeing at the Quietus and the CRAN network. The CRAN problem exists across mirrors.
I have tried clearing the cache and cookies.
Any suggestions welcome.

This is usually caused by a problem with a specific font and you need to identify this font and fix this. You may find that it can be resolved by finding and removing duplicate fonts installed in the local ~/Library/Fonts folder, that are conflicting with standard system fonts.
You can check in Font Book for font issues like corrupted and duplicate fonts. Note that you shouldn't disable "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" as this will cause issues with iconic fonts used by webpages to display small icons (you may see text labels instead of icons).

You can right-click and select "Inspect" to open the built-in 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 Fonts 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.
I have this problem too, which has occurred only since I upgraded my Mac OS to Ventura 13.3.1 (22E261). I have tried following the instructions above for the built in inspector but an unable to select or delete any fonts in the edit fonts section. I do not have any duplicate fonts in my Library. How can you help?
