[Solved Problem] Firefox crash on Ubuntu after installing Windows fonts

The Problem
After installing Microsoft Core fonts on ubuntu, firefox crashed when loading pages. When trying to load firefox from the shell, the following message is received

(gecko:6422): Pango-WARNING **: failed to create cairo scaled font, expect ugly output. the offending font is ‘Arial 12’
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


Solution:
This problem is caused by permissions of the newly installed fonts, so just resetting permissions using the following command:

sudo chmod -Rv 775 /usr/share/fonts/
