Photoshop Text Engine is Slow

After Photoshop 24.2.1 (March) update, the text engine has been slow. It takes about 30 seconds to load the fonts! I didn't change anything like installing new hardware, font, or app. I realized the font loading has been slow after updating the text engine to "Unified Text Engine". In the March update, it freezes for about 30 seconds (even for the default Myriad font!). I have some RTL (variable) fonts installed (as before), but I didn't have any problem with the "Legacy" text engine.

Besides the Windows 11 native (original) fonts, I have installed about 10-15 LTR (Persian) fonts (most of them are variable). I always use FB (FontBase) to activate some fonts temporarily when I need them. FB had a problem with previous versions (Photoshop), but they have solved it. Photoshop has a problem with loading fonts, even when I don't use FB.
