Can you attach a screenshot?

Do you see little boxes with a hex code instead of the image?

Special icons are usually supplied by an icon font that is downloaded from the server via @font-face CSS rules.

You can check gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled on the about:config page and make sure it is set to true (if necessary double-click the line to toggle its value to true). Also make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts.

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Advanced
    [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

If you use uBlock Origin then check "block remote fonts".

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, NoScript, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

Firefox shows the shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Content Blocking is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more details and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console about what content is blocked

This looks like an issue with a corrupted font.

What font is Firefox trying to use?

You can right-click and select "Inspect Element" to open the builtin Inspector with this element selected.

You can check in the Rules tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font-family is used for selected text. You can check in the Font tab in the right panel in the Inspector what font is actually used because Firefox might be using a different font than specified by the website.
