Maybee you change you character encoding in Firefox.
You can find it under view. top right at the settings.

Witch version of Firefox you use ? Firefox, Firefox-esr or the new one Firefox 57 ?

Firefox ESR. Encoding is OK. Diacritics are much smaller than regular characters.
It seems to happen on websites that don`t force their own fonts. These problematic fonts are not anti-aliased or hinted. Other websites work OK. I tried to change the default font in Firefox but it won`t help. Here how it looks like:

Firefox 57 also spoils diactritics on some websites. Any ideas, please?
