Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0
Build ID: 20150224135625

Steps to reproduce:

Used Firefox on a web page that specified a certain font.
I had that font installed locally, and fontconfig knew of it and found it, but the filesystem permissions did not allow the truetype font files to be opened.



Actual results:

Firefox then does not render any text


Expected results:

It should instead fall back to other fonts in the list or the system default font if none work.
very likely a dupe of bug 656882
