Description of problem:
After installing MS TTF fonts (Times New Roman, Courier, Arial, Verdana) Firefox
crashes when entering on many pages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy earlier mentioned fonts to /usr/share/fonts/local
2. Run fc-cache /usr/share/fonts/
3. Start firefox and enter page: http://fedoranews.org
Firefox properly renders page
KDE applications don't have problems with these fonts. Firefox in FC4 didn't
have problems either.
I tried to more test this problem, but it don't occur now (maybe after some of
the last updates?).
