    I’ve been cleaning some stuff from my computer and noticed Microsoft folder in /Library/Fonts folder (not in my user Fonts folder). I figured it was from Office back when I installed it and the uninstalled it but it obviously didn’t unistall these fonts. Many of the provided fonts are already available on the OSX so I figured it is safe to remove that folder. But it wasn’t :). Firefox lost all the text so I had to restore that folder and then everything was OK.

    Is it possible to remove link with that fonts and leave it to OS fonts?

    You assume that you will never receive a document from anyone that uses any of those Microsoft fonts? You do know that Text Edit and Pages and other applications can read Microsoft documents just fine don't you?
