Firefox menus and dialogs missing text
All Firefox (38.0.1-r1) menus and dialogs (including popups and form fields) are missing text as shown below.
Strangely, the web pages themselves have text, but the user interface elements do not.
I have installed ttf-freefont, font-bitstream-100dpi, ttf-dejavu, ttf-liberation, and many more.
Other gtk applications (xfce4-terminal, pcmanfm, thunar) do not appear to have this problem.
