Like I said elsewhere, I looks like the version 10 applications do not 
pick up the settings from System->Preferences->Fonts->Details... in 
GNOME. I've just verified that Firefox does on a system with an older 
CentOS version, although there are no direct updates like for other 
programs - I have to hit reload to see updates in the contents area, and 
restart to get updated display in menus etc.

If it's not too much too ask, could you check if these settings have and 
effect for you?
