  • [This post solved it for me.](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1759667#c12) This issue is caused by having Noto Color Emoji too high in the font priority. Check `/etc/fonts/local.conf` for the following item:
  • ```xml
  • <match target="pattern">
  • <edit name="family" mode="prepend">
  • <string>Noto Color Emoji</string>
  • </edit>
  • </match>
  • ```
  • It will likely be at the end. Maybe also check `/etc/fonts/fonts.conf` for it.
  • This loads Noto Color Emoji before every font. Since this font has [images for numbers](https://github.com/googlefonts/noto-emoji/blob/main/svg/emoji_u0030.svg) but not letters, it will replace numbers but let letters be the intended font.
  • Delete those lines and restart Firefox and everything should go back to normal.
