    Go to Preferences => Content Tab and click on Advanced.
    Check if "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selection above" is checked.

    Maybe that helps.

    Hmm.
    You can try this as well:
    Preferences => Advanced => General => Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

    And check if the minimum font size "none".

    Alternatively, you could delete or rename the Firefox profile folder and restart Firefox. Maybe there is something wrong with the profile.

    You can find your Firefox profil under:
    /home/USER/.mozilla/firefox/

    If you delete the folder make sure that you make a Backup of your bookmarks. All bookmarks and extensions will be lost after deletion.

    Mind telling me why you need to install these 3 fonts?, to my experience the default FF fonts just good. What DE are you using currently.
    Intel G2020 (Ivy), Asus P8H77-M LE, Tumbleweed, Gnome 3.24 on 120GB SSD
    Intel i5 4590 (Haswell), MSI B85M-G43, MSI GTX750Ti, Tumbleweed, Gnome 3.24 on 120GB SSD

    Why don't you simply create a new user and try there? It get all default
    settings, and your normal user is not modified at all.

    Instead of deleting your current profile you can make new profile to see if the problem is with your settings or it is firefox in general. You can launch profile manager with:
    Code:
    firefox -P
    Create new profile and launch it from there.

    If the problem appear on the new profile you can try to update font cache after deleting those fonts.
    Code:
    fc-cache -fv
    It is a little weird, because I always install Microsoft fonts after every new install to help font rendering on some websites.
