Qupzilla shouldn't be affected by the GTK-debacle.

Here Qupzilla and any other Qt app always used and still use wrong font
sizes. I don't know how to handle Qt5 fonts. I don't care, because
qtconfig-qt4, resp. .config/Trolltech.conf already had no affect at all.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep font .config/Trolltech.conf
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ qtconfig
qtconfig      qtconfig-qt3  qtconfig-qt4  
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ pacman -Q qupzilla qt5-base qt5-webkit
qupzilla 1.8.9-2
qt5-base 5.6.0-3
qt5-webkit 5.6.0-4

On my machine the Qupzilla font is the wanted FreeSans or a very
similar font, just the size is much too small, but always was much to

How did you select what font Qupzilla and other Qt apps should use?
