this crash signature (mostly in the content process) is reappearing during firefox 69.

I think this is a regression from bug 1490792, though it may be exposing a pre-existing issue. In particular, when unlinking the font face, we remove the font-face-set pointer:

But we don't modify mInFontFaceSet, which may be an issue.

Regressed by: 1490792

When we unlink, we may null out the mFontFaceSet pointer, but still keep
mInFontFaceset as true. Which can cause null dereference bugs as described in
comment 0.

This is mostly a speculative fix since I think that's a plausible cause for a
bug like that, but it may not be the only cause for the crash.
