See https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/issues/931

Only implemented by Firefox and you can just use textContent anyway.

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]:
SVGAElement has text methods that duplicate textContent. Safari and Chrome have never implemented this method and it's now been removed from Firefox. Calls to set text or get text content via SVGAElement.text can be replaced by SVGAElement.textContent.
[Affects Firefox for Android]:
yes
[Suggested wording]:

Added to the Fx125 relnotes:

Support for SVGAElement.text was removed in favor of the more widely-implemented SVGAElement.textContent method.

FF125 MDN docs work for this can be tracked in https://github.com/mdn/content/issues/32779. This was just a release note and update of the compat data.
