Pages missing the <meta ... charset=...> bit seem to inherit the value from the previous page to a new window and the page is displayed with the wrong font family and size. The only way I can reproduce this is by going to some page which specifies a charset, say asahi.com or suprnova.org, then ^N (new-window) and entering another url like imdb (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0246578/). Left-clicking links, or opening links in a new tab seem ok. I'll attach a testcase and a screenshot to try and better demonstrate. This affects Mozilla 1.7.2 (gtk1) and Firefox 0.9+ (gtk2) on linux. No problems on the Windows machine at work. I've had a few people on irc confirm this, but someone else tell me he had no problems. Nothing special here for font configuration, created a new profile for testing. I see bugs 107889, 111217, and 219264, but they deal with frames or tabs, but may be related. See also bug 246137, which I filed (and later closed), but is still related.

IMO a duplicate of bug 158285.
