Andale Mono
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono
Courier New
DejaVu Sans Mono
JetBrains Mono
Liberation Mono
Nimbus Mono PS
Noto Mono
Noto Sans Mono
Ubuntu Mono

are some monospaced fonts that I’ve got installed on my machine and
that have ligatures “fi” and “fl”. And yes, Cousine is currently my
programming font of choice. And no, I wouldn’t like it to use the fi
ligature, because it’s drawn with a one cell advance, i.e. it will
both break alignment and disrupt reading pace.
