This behavior seems similar to what I experience while using Guix in
Trisquel 8.0
Flidas. The problem doesn't cause squares to appear, it actually causes
the last text font that fontconfig advertises to IceCat, to be selected.

I don't know how fontconfig selects these fonts, but I noticed that you
can test this by placing some font in "~/.local/share/fonts" and running
`fc-cache -vf'. IceCat should pick that font. You might need to try with
different fonts, as IceCat seems to expect from fontconfig that it
selects fonts with specific properties.
