allow monochrome fonts in firefox

fontconfig (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Firefox gives highest priority to global font settings in /etc/fonts. And font antialias is set globally (/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-antialias.conf). Because of this it is impossible to set monochrome fonts in Appearance Preferences. I'm proposing to remove /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-antialias.conf then Appearance Preferences will have effect on firefox. I know that this is temporary fix.
