As for the Noto Emoji font, everything's a-okay. They show up in the
size of the surrounding text, and even though they're not coloured
(because they're not coloured in the font, either), they work just as
you'd expect emoji to work.
When using the Noto Color Emoji font, however, it produces results as
shown in the pictures attached. As you may notice, they are WAY
oversized for the area they're supposed to be displayed in. The first
attachment (emoji-regular.png) shows the emoji as they show up on
second one (emoji-textarea.png) shows the emoji when used in a text
area. The emoji was pasted in line 7 as last character on the line.
As I said, though, I am pretty sure the oversized display is due to my
installation of the font (or the font in general?) being corrupted or
unusable, not a bug in IceCat.
With regard to the replies: Yes, I am subscribed to the list, so
there's no need to CC me :)

The about:config solution is one, though in some operating systems,
browsers typically default to the closest possible match, if they
on the OS to match missing characters, thus precluding the trip to
wrt font size, can you send a screenshot of what the Noto emoji look
like for you with text?
For example, both in a plain Wikipedia article, and in a textarea
(editing an article).
wrt to replies, then I originally sent a reply both to bug-gnuzilla,
and a carbon copy to you. On assumption, that you've subscribed
anyway, then I won't :cc you.

Whoops. Apparently that email didn't include the previous reply I
to Mart. Here you go:
Great! Thanks for the advice.
I added the Noto Color Emoji font to the following about:config
Now the Emoji actually do show up. They're way too big, though
I'll play around with the font settings and see if I can manage
this; Maybe I'll have to use a different font.

Anyhow, with Mart's help I figured out how to display the emoji
I also found out that -- for some reason I don't know -- the Noto
Emoji font on my system appears to be corrupted, as the font
as what looks like a rounded square in gnome-font-viewer (see
attachment). Not sure what causes this, but I fell back to the
uncoloured version of that font, namely Noto Emoji. It's no big
Now all emoji that I wanted to display show up just fine.
Thanks again for your help, Mart!
