Firefox 10.0.1, at least the version in CentOS6 that is included, has
its own unique font settings.

Please open the Edit => Preferences ... then click the "Content" tab.

In the Content Area, you will see a "Fonts & Colors" area, and there is
where you will pick your Firefox font.  There is also an Advanced section.
