I experienced this exact same after an update involving 
fonts-dejavu-core and iceweasel.  I saw the issue in Iceweasel - but 
after restarting Iceweasel it worked correctly...

In short: If you saw this in a long-running Iceweasel, Icedove or Iceape 
session, please try restart the application and tell if that fixed it.
