Hey guys,

lately people use UTF-8 in i.e. Facebook group names. Like the "rocket" or the "cashbag".
If notification-mails with those symbols arrive on my linux thunderbird those Icons go crazy and more or less destroy the mail overview!

Check out the screenshot: ... 095956.png

Is this a reported /known bug? When will it be fixed?

Moving to Thunderbird Support as no bug has yet been identified here.

See if this thread addresses the issue -- viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3040739&p=14804003&hilit=+emoji+subject#p14804003
