There is no way to set the fonts back to defaults.
As I noted on IRC, a "Reset to Defaults" is an extremely heavy-handed approach
that is a little too "all or nothing" for my liking.  Our Fonts UI isn't exactly
something I'm happy with, but this isn't the answer.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs,
filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change

Add "reset all fonts" button.

The Preferences > Fonts is a giant tree.
It needs a [ ]Reset all fonts button,
else the only way for the user to reset all of them
is to reset all of firefox.

Adding a Reset all Fonts button there would take staff a minute to make,
and save the user hours of recursively checking every nook an cranny for any non-Default settings...
which by the way he has no way of figuring out if they are default or not, without comparing a
new employee in the neighboring cubicle's Firefox, each language at a time!
