            Bug ID: 191976
           Summary: webkitgtk-2.22: Noto Color Emoji is partially used
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2

          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

This comes from https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/fontconfig/fontconfig/issues/136

In summary, with Google Chrome, Firefox and Epiphany (using webkit-gtk), sometimes some emojis are shown with Noto Color Emoji while others are shown with the old B&W style.

For example you can see many examples simply looking to the comments of many youtube videos as people seems to like to use a lot of emojis on them and you can see some use Noto Color Emoji while others not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAirINwjaxE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDb5QMRTCPI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbEoRnaOIbs (and many other random examples)

Looking to "Inspect element" Firefox tool, in "Fonts" section, I see that "Dejavu Sans" is being used to show emojis instead of Noto Color Emoji. I have seen that current default /etc/fonts/conf.avail/60-generic.conf only sets Noto Color Emoji for emoji while, probably, it should also be listed for other "families" to be used over ugly emoji fonts from other font sets.

I suggested that to fontconfig people, but they disagree and think that it's an issue in the application instead:
