Steps to reproduce:

When I view yahoo mail there are icons present for the various functions on the left and across the top. When Yahoo introduced it's "latest" new UI, these icons changed to rather indecipherable icons. If it weren't for the hover hint that appears after hovering over each icon, the UI would be totally useless.

I have NO idea how this happened.

I created a new profile and the problem did NOT appear with the new profile. The problem still exists in the old profile.

I would rather not abandon my old profile. How can I fix it?

1. Can you please tick the Option "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, ..." in Options/Content/Advanced ?

2. Does it work with a new profile ?

You are the MISTRESS of code!

Turning on that option made everything cool now. I had tried to specify a font that was BOLD so that I don't have to wear my glasses to read web pages. 

Is this still a bug? The gibberish?

Thank you SO MUCH!

I sure wish that the Firefox folks would fix the font sizing problems. I have seen other bug reports relating to that, it's very difficult and controversial.

Some times, people use REALLY TINY fonts  in their emails so I was attempting to override just those fonts.

Currently, with my larger fonts, I'm seeing various parts of the display that don't fit. Text is truncated to the right and to the bottom as well as other places.

If I was going to ask for changes, I'd ask for the ability to override fonts in specific parts of the screen.

Anyway, THANKS for your help with this.

In this case, userContent.css helps. is a good place to ask questions like this.
