Bug 1185812 states:   "status-firefox42: fixed"

Isn't that true?
Ah, sorry, I got platform and version details confused.

So in fact this is not a duplicate of bug 1185812, because it's on OS X; that was reported for Linux. Instead, I think this was actually a regression triggered by the patch in bug 1185812, and is essentially the same issue as bug 1221263 (just manifested with the Helvetica Neue family rather than Hoefler Text as reported there).

That is supposed to be fixed as part of bug 1201318, currently on FF44 and awaiting uplift to 43. If for some reason that uplift runs into problems, the minimal patch in bug 1221263 should also be sufficient to fix this; updating the duplicate reference here accordingly.
