(Note: I'm not a developer, just another user).

It's probably a bug. Font handling seems to have regressed since the
switch to Webkit, it isn't really possible to lock down the font, and
I'm even getting different fonts on different zoom levels in some

See bugs #583697, #615107 and others.

The ad blocker is indeed not to be trusted, and is probably in need of
some serious love to function properly.

Supposedly Midori (another WebKitGTK+ browser) has a good adblock
extension, which might be a good fit for Epiphany?
