Not sure about doing 5x10 front squats anyway but let's think about what's happening here.
Your pelvis is being tilted forward and the front squats shift more focus to a muscle group which straightens the knee out but also closes the angle between the leg and hip.
I'm not sure that is a great strategy to fix APT. If you want to front squat, great but use rehab methods to fix APT(there is a great article on tnation).
As you previously never deadlifted, you may find as your hams gets stronger and catch up to your other leg muscles, it helps out a bit.
