Weirdest Firefox problem ever. Some text, across different sites, appears scrambled -- or, more accurately is rot-2. Uninstalling, deleting profile and re-installing did not help. WTF?

It affects some text, but not all. I checked the character encoding but switching between Western and Unicode doesn't affect it. If it's an add-on, it's one I can't seem to find/disable.
When I copy the rot-2 text and then paste it, what's pasted is transformed to what the text should have been.
Here are a few screenshots:

Anyone run across something like this before or know what's going on?
