Mozilla has a perfectly good UI for this.  Just uncheck that box in the
font preferences panel that allows web pages to use their own fonts.  Your
fonts will be used all the time.

In galeon, there is fast access to this preferences in the main menubar.
Just pick View->use my fonts (or whatever it really is).

Finally, any rule that appears in user.css with an important selector will
override any web page.  If you insist on certain fonts, you can simply
define a rule in user.css for the <body> element with font-size: 500pts.

Neither the W3C nor Mozilla have failed us in this regard.
