Thanks for the help, Steve. On my laptop, Evolution is one of the first
applications to start up when I login and I believe it uses pango. Also,
the issue is particularly insidious because it only shows up after
Firefox has been open for a while and only on some websites. Still,
that's an idea. How can I go about finding out if it is a pango issue?
