It's easy to change the default fonts in Firefox.  Click on Edit->Preferences->Content.  The default font is set in the middle of the window.

FWIW, the default fonts on Firefox look good on my system but this is, of course, a matter of taste.

You might also want to click on Advanced in front of the font selection and uncheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts" if... well, if you don't want to allow pages to choose their own fonts.  ;)
