OK, solve it. Well maybe a bug in TB, using Googles notoColorEmoji.ttf (https://github.com/googlei18n/noto-emoji) installed in .font folder (linux here) and having no other emoji style font files installed, notoEmoji-Regular.ttf or Symbola-emoji.tff causes this issue. installing one of the standard non-colour emoji fonts and the problem goes away, and so does your coloured emojis. TB seems to use the standard version in perference to the color version font file

I hope this help someone else

This work for me thanks. I had to place the file notoColorEmoji.ttf into the directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto though. I'm running Ubuntu Linux 18.04 (dev) with Thunderbird 52.6.0 .
