Glyphs/Dingbats in uBlock Origin TBB not displaying in Gnu+Linux

Description

When the uBlock Origin icon is clicked in Tor Browser and the toggles at the bottom of uBlock are also clicked, the icons show a red box with the numbers 2715 instead of a black X. This is because this very generic and very old unicode https://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2715/browsertest.htm is either not supported by the current fonts in TBB on Gnu+Linux or, if it is supported, the font fallback mechanism isn't working.

Replying to cypherpunks:

Don't use uBlock in TBB.

It's included by default in Tails.

Interesting. Do you know what fixed it? An updated ublock version?

My best guess is that uBlock Origin started using red X's, which render in Tor Browser for Linux, instead of black X's, which sadly don't render in Tor Browser for Linux.
