Epiphany/Liferea no longer honours "Document Font" setting

Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

Launchpad and Wikipedia seem to be using Arial when they would previously use whatever I had selected as my "Document Font" in my desktop font settings.

Seems to affect gtkmozembed maybe, as Liferea is defaulting to a 8pt Times New Roman-style font.

This started happening within the last week of Hardy updates, I think.

Having the same problem but on Liferea 1.6.6b, Ubuntu 11.10

the style.css file in ~/.liferea/cache/ keeps resetting itself back to Times New Roman, I even tried to make it read-only, but somehow it manages to change itself back.

It's really annoying, the font looks horrible all over the browser section of Liferea, that I'm desperately looking for an RSS reader that simply let's me change the font !

affects: epiphany-browser (Ubuntu) → liferea (Ubuntu)
