    Thunderbird Subject Line Emojis Rendered Very Large

    I have an annoying problem with font scaling in Ubuntu 18.04 in Thunderbird. Subject line emojis rendered very large and obscure surrounding subjects.
    Have googled this and can find nothing that helps on Thunderbird/Mozilla threads.
    Have turned off "Display emmoticons as graphics" in Thunderbird Preferences and removed the font EmojiOneMozilla.ttf, cleared the cache to no avail.
    Every time I start the PC and check mail I can't see headers of nearby mail.
    I read that removing "<edit name="scalable" mode="assign"><bool>true</bool></edit>" from the font config would work but I cannot find it anywhere using grep -r.
    I haven't noticed the problem in other applications. Any ideas?

    attached an image.

    Thanks in advance for looking and advice.

    I think Emojis in email headers are shown MUCH too large is the bug report you might want keep watching.

    Report doesn't mention a workaround though.
    The Bug Squad needs your help. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad

    Thanks a lot for that @ PaulW2U, at least I know it is being addressed.

    @tydfil2. If you look at the bug report, it is currently not being addressed. Can I suggest you add your name to the list of those affected? More chance of it being fixed.

    Cheers
    Bill

    A fix is now added to the bug report.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install fonts-symbola
    It worked for me
