Running Tor Browser version 11.0.1 on Fedora 35 XFCE Workstation is yielding broken characters in the menus and other places for me.

This was working fine for me on a previous version of Tor Browser (10) on this XFCE env. in Fedora 34, fwiw. I am also running this as non-root.
I tried downloading a fresh version of Tor Browser and when I do the initial launch the same issue occurs. I am wondering if this is an issue on XFCE environments in particular due to some strange encoding irregularity.
Here are some system details I am running with:
Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.14.17-301.fc35.x86_64
WM Theme: Default
Font: Sans 10
CPU: Intel Core i5-2520 @ 4x 3.2GHz
GPU: Mesa Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000

In “fonts.conf”. On my system(Fedora 35) file’s path is “~/.local/share/torbrowser/tbb/x86_64/tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/Data/fontconfig/fonts.conf”
In first line:
Adding “1” to version number is fixing the issue:
Seems logical since problem occurred right after Tor Browser was updated to 11.0 version
Path on no install tor browser:
I just posted a question and instead I used your solution and my problem is solved. Thank you Leto
