Firefox, no text

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1) AppleWebKit/600.1.25 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/8.0 Safari/600.1.25

Steps to reproduce:

Following the steps at http://input.fontbureau.com/systemfont/, I have substituted an alternate font for my system. This has taken effect system-wide, except for in Firefox. (see screenshots 1 and 2.)

To reproduce:
1. Install the Input System font, as above.
2. Restart, to enact the change.
3. Open Firefox.


Actual results:

No text is displayed.


Expected results:

Text should have appeared.

Firefox, with custom font in webpage

If I go to a page that specifies a font, it will render that font.
Component: Untriaged → Layout: Text
Product: Firefox → Core
Could you please test a nightly build that includes some system font related bug fixes (like for example bug 931040) ?

I see this on Mac OS X 10.10, with the latest nightly (11/11/2014?).
