Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own.

The sidebars use:

font: 13px/1.25 "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;

Or in other words:

font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.25; 
font-family: "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;

Did you install Helvetica Neue? I believe it is a heavier typeface than traditional Helvetica/Arial, but it should not be oblique (slanted).

I'm not sure about Windows 10, but on Windows 7 if you open this folder you can click through to see which of the various faces are available for your different fonts.

C:\Windows\Fonts

For example, if you double-click Arial, you can see numerous different styles and weights.

What do you find for Helvetica Neue? Did you get a regular weight and bold weight that are not oblique?

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the Inspector (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) with this element selected. You can check the font used for selected text in the Font tab in the right pane of the Inspector.
