Comment (by vegansalad):

 My issue has to do with dingbats, not emojis. Should I create a new ticket
 about this or does it make sense to tackle it here?

 As an example:

 Simple things like the pencil doesn't work on TBB on Linux:

 In TBB on Windows, the pencil works via Micro$oft's copyrighted MS PGothic
 (which Linux can't use) but it doesn't look very good.

 Oh, and a simple X works in TBB Windows but not TBB Linux:

 Also, black flag dingbats don't seem to work on TBB on either Windows or
 Linux: https://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2691/browsertest.htm
