How to use Symbola font?

I installed firefox on Windows 7, and since the built-in fonts don't have a lot of coverage in some Unicode ranges I also installed the Symbola font. However on web pages some characters are still not shown.

Given the following HTML:

   <span style='font-family: symbola;'>🌐🌑🌒🌓</span>

The first row will still show missing character boxes. It looks like only the built-in Segoe UI font is used to display the symbols. The second row will show all characters.

Is it possible to use Symbola as a fallback font to display those characters?

Desired result: since symbola is installed, the latter two glyphs are displayed using symbola Actual result:
