This is a spin off of
This is happening only in Firefox Android, not on macos for the same version of Firefox Nightly. 

.module-spinner::before {
	content: "\25BE";

is not displayed on Android. Probably missing font to display the character.
Maybe it's an issue for bugzilla thinking about it.
Summary: There are a lot of rectangle. → content is not displayed on
Moving to, because it's probably a missing font.
Product: Firefox for Android →
Version: Firefox 61 → Production
I cannot reproduce the issue on both my Nexus 5X phone and Nexus 9 tablet. It's not a web font but system font, which is Noto Sans Symbols on vanilla Android. Maybe the font or the particular symbol is missing on the user's device for some reason. Since we have Material Icons installed, it's easy to fix the issue by using the web font.

But the original report says the issue doesn’t reproduce with Chrome, and I guess this is not site-specific. Moving to the right component so the root cause can be fixed in Firefox.

A side note: in the future I’d like to use a web font for all the symbols/icons on Bugzilla anyway and make them a11y-friendly.
