Its a bit more complicated that that, unfortunately. You need to go into $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/defaults/pref/unix.js and change the following lines:

pref("font.FreeType2.enable", false); # Change to true pref("font.freetype2.shared-library", ""); #make sure this is correct

now, go down a bit more where it says //pref("", "/u/sam/tt_font3"); and add your own truetype font directories here. Make sure that you get the .1, .2, .3 &c numbers right.

This *should* work. Run mozilla and open up font prefs and choose a font beginning with a Capital Letter.
