Some of the graphics on websites I visit have been replaced with text and I'm not sure how to fix this. Usually it's down or up arrows on sites. See below

Go to Options -> General -> Fonts & colors and press the Advanced button. Then select Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above

If the above does not resolve the issue:

From Guidestar? That is the Material Icons font (see first attached screenshot showing how to determine that using the Inspector tool -- right-click the character, Inspect Element, then change the panel on the lower right from Rules to Fonts).

The font loads from a Google site (second attached screenshot):

Possibly your Firefox can't access or prefers not to access some Google sites, either due to privacy add-ons, Containers, or external security blocks?
