I've overridden website fonts for *all* sites, preemptively, with a
custom CSS.  Most browsers let you park a userContent.css somewhere.  I
find not having this control maddening.

The following should do this for you:

/* Force *all* fonts, weights, and line heights to be normal by default
 * unless otherwise specified.

* { 
    font-size: 100% !important; 
    line-height: normal !important; 
    font-family: serif !important;

    People really aren't going to trust [Orkut, Friendster, and ilk] if
    they view these start-ups as honeypots for future marketroids to
    reap everything we didn't want them to know.
