Emoji on forum website

I can’t add an emoji to a post:

  • firefox I get two colons → ::
  • Chrome I get:

I can put emojis in a post → :smiley: :blush: :rabbit:

Am I missing a package?

Just to add to my general confusion - opera works :exploding_head:

Perhaps a reboot will help? Firefox was updated this week.

Not in a post, to someone else’s post

This is an ongoing problem. Rebooted a lot since then :smiley:

@Bryanpwo @r0ckhopper I have added an emoji to your posts - can you see it?

See the red circles.

In Firefox i see only :: as your screenshot

I’ve seen a lot of that from you and some other rare users posts before, and not all post smileys as well, some specific…

For example in OP i can see :heart_eyes: from you, but not the other one


The :heart_eyes: was posted with opera, the :: with chrome.

Here is the post

Maybe some extensions messing it up?
Like cutting some parts of url before sending to server
Can you try fresh profile of Chrome / Firefox?

Will give it a go. BRB

OK, it is an extension, but which one :rofl:

There’s only one-by-one way to know!



No its not…

Yes, it’s yes :joy:

No chrome was running in background in taskbar so I hadn’t shut it FFS!

Language tool, going to do a full reboot after an update…

The strange thing is that we also see four dots when you post an emoji, but with the other users I can see the emojis.
