I've searched and searched.. and searched. Anyone know if it's possible to replace the ugly FireFox emoji? I hate that there's no standard for them and it really negates the whole use, when two users does not see the same image. Here's a comparison between the iOS emoji (on the left) and FF (on the right).

(Your comparison, screenshot, didn't quite make it up here.)

Emojis are just glyphs which are defined by the fonts available to your system. Acquire the relevant font in iOS and you can use it in Firefox too.
There is a plan to let Firefox config fonts for emojis specifically. For now, you have to do it the hard way. This may affect the display of other contents. You have to experiment it youself.

Commonly seen emojis are a part of Unicode standard.
