From #68

Strange. The character is included in the Unicode Standard (7.0.0) since 2014 [1, 2]. UTF8 is declared in all documents [3, 4].

@Kein: Which operating system do you use?

Debian 10 and Xubuntu 18.04 have no problems. With Android 10 there is also a display problem.

Windows 7 definitely supports UTF-8, the problem will probably be some special behavior of Firefox on Windows 7.

Just tested: The new character is displayed correctly on Android 10 and Windows 7 and will be released with the next update.

I'm not talking about UTF but new subset of unicode symbols and emojis, they are only avaiable on Win8+
