The /etc/environment setting only specifies the default environment; in
order to make it take effect, you'd have to reboot.

To check without rebooting, try running

FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=truetype:interpreter-version=35 thunderbird

from a terminal (assuming 'thunderbird' is the name of the executable in
your PATH which launches the program).
