The reporter writes that the same fonts work fine in the rest of the desktop
gui, that also uses the system freetype with autohinting.

Thus clearly the problem is not the system freetype or cairo libs, the problem
lies in the way firefox uses them. Investigation will probably show that:
1. firefox fails to pass a crucial rendering parameter to one of the system
libs, or
2. that since firefox insists on duplicating a private font configuration
system in prefs.js (instead of using the desktop settings broadcasted via
XSettings), it's missing one parameter which had been set desktop-side and not
duplicated by the user manually in prefs.js.
