Since updating to 183 most text showing in flash is unreadable. Here is what it looks like using vCenter but this happens on any flash site not just vmware.
I also tried to go back to an older version and the text stayed like this even tho it was not like this on the previous versions before 183 was out. This is using Firefox 56.0.1 on Manjaro Linux.

This has something to do with the availability of the expected system font. It's just showing the standard Unicode replacement character for everything.
I very much doubt that this was injected by either Flash Player 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206. It seems much more likely that it's a system configuration issue.
This is not a Linux distro that we test on or support.
I found this recommendation on Stack Exchange that looks promising:
I had seen that and already have that font and even reinstall it. I have tried changing system fonts and font settings in firefox also.
Is there any kind of flash log that may indicate what font is missing or give some pointers?
No. This isn't a Linux distro that we support. I don't believe that you would encounter this on a supported distro like Ubunut or RedHat. I'm not sure what the delta is between your distro and those that would cause this.
