Firefox / Boxes instead of letters

Post by kora-kora »

Hi,

I am on the base glibc Void with i3.

On some youtube pages, Firefox shows boxes with letters and numbers instead of letters. I have tried installed a couple of various fonts, including awesome, but to no avail. How can I get that fixed?

Thank you.

In my experience it's always the issue with east asian logograms missing, I think to solve it I needed to install the following packages: noto-fonts-ttf noto-fonts-ttf-extra noto-fonts-cjk noto-fonts-emoji. Then if installing doesn't automatically solve the problem, go to Firefox's settings > Fonts > Advanced and check if there are fonts selected for chinese/korean/japanese etc.
