You should check the preferences of your browser (Firefox?) to see what
it is using. But I will take a guess: the most common default sans-serif
font under Ubuntu is DejaVu Sans*, which for English is pretty much
identical to Bitstream Vera**. Both can be downloaded from the web in a
format suitable for installation under Windows.
