Thanks for your quick reply. It did not work for me unfortunately.

I mean, I had those fonts before I installed them via Guix already. I
only tried installing them via Guix to be sure, that there are also some
Guix installed fonts and that it is not an issue of not having any
installed via Guix, which causes Icecat not to find any, when Icecat
itself is installed via Guix. Unfortunately it does not seem that this
is the issue.

After running the fc-cache -f I restarted Icecat and still everything is
monospaced there.
