Remove Times New Roman from Fedora 23

{font-family:Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;}

I expect the above style to fall back to using my browser's default serif rather than pick up "Times New Roman" when it doesn't find "Georgia". I expect so because I do not remember installing msfonts ever on my laptop running Fedora 23.

I searched /usr/share/fonts and ~/.fonts but I couldn't find the Times New Roman file under those directory hierarchies. How can I get rid of "Times New Roman" from my installation?

Remove Times New Roman from Fedora 23

I do not have msfonts installed on my Fedora Operating System (23). However, Chrome and Firefox both render many websites in Times New Roman (confirmed under the debugger). While debugging one such website I found that its CSS had the following line for its body:

{font-family:Georgia,"Times New Roman",Times,serif;}

I expect the above style to fall back to using my browser's default serif rather than pick up either "Times New Roman" when it doesn't find "Georgia". I expect so or "Georgia" because I do not remember installing msfonts ever on both should be absent from my laptop running Fedora 23.system (no msfonts).

However, I searched /usr/share/fonts and ~/.fonts but I and couldn't find the Times "Times New Roman Roman" file under those directory hierarchies. How So, I believe there is another way Fedora is able to find Times New Roman on my system. My question is how can I get rid of "Times New Roman" from my installation?
