You probably did not install the required fonts. If I remember
correctly, zh-CJKUnifonts are recommended (chinese characters
working for me). I have also installed zh-arphicttf, zh-ttf2pt1,
and zh-ttfm, in case it should matter.

No idea, my system is "dbus-free" for 5+ years, but I'd imagine
that if you first remove both (Firefox _and_ DBus), then install
Firefox, it should recursively install the correct DBus version
that works with the version of Firefox you're about to install...
