If you have garbled text in Firefox after the recent media-libs/freetype-2.8.1 update, it's easy to fix temporarily.

1. Go to about:config in Firefox
2. Type azure to the search
3. You should see two values: gfx.canvas.azure.backends and gfx.content.azure.backends
4. Change their values from `skia` to `cairo`
5. Restart Firefox

6. Leave a note to yourself somewhere about the change so you remember to change back after it's fixed upstream.
