Hello, I recently upgraded all user packages and also did a system
reconfig. In the new version of IceCat, I have this odd problem where
all digits are mysteriously missing from all Web pages. The numbers 1,
2, 3, etc are each replaced by a block of whitespace about two spaces
wide. Digits do appear correctly in the tabs and menu bar, but not in
the Web pages themselves. Digits appear correctly in other applications
such as evolution. I tried disabling all special gnome themes and
making sure default fonts and colors are set in IceCat, but I still get
them same result. I am not sure what additional information would be
most pertinent in this case, but let me know and I will send it.

Christopher,

This sounds like a duplicate of ol' bug #33996, so I'm merging the
two.

Below, I assume IceCat is installed to your user's default
profile.

IceCat uses the fonts installed in its profile. Which fonts do
you currently have (guix package -I ^font-)?

If font-gnu-freefont-ttf isn't installed, try installing it, but
IceCat shouldn't depend on any specific font, just ‘a font’.
Which font that is should be left up to the user.

Kind regards,

T G-R

I installed font-gnu-freefont-ttf as instructed, and the digits came
back.
