Greetings,

I've updated a few days ago firefox to 55.0.2, since then the text on it is grabbled.
see:

for some reason I cannot downgrade firefox because of compilation error.
firefox-bin displays the same issue.

any ideas how to fix it?

already reported as bug 628340

Probably one of the libraries is busted, maybe media-libs/harfbuzz or x11-libs/pango or maybe x11-libs/cairo; try oneshot re-emerging these libraries?

What is the error you get when downgrading, it might be a clue to fixing the current version too...

none of the mentioned above were updated on the same session.
here is the error:

I cannot decipher what is the issue.

ok, this is solved.
the pgo flag causes this.
disabling it returned ff to working order.

will open a bug on this.
