    there is no reason to double set the font-family. this wouldn't be the cause of the discrepancy, however it still is redundant and unnecesary code.

    now as for the browsers, well firefox and IE use 2 different types of rendering engines so they will inheritly show differenly on the page.

    The font differences, however, are probably caused by Firefox' font-override settings. Check your preferences.
