We have translate some emoji in pootle server, and I found those emojis had been translated doesn't work.

emoji work and does not work
Comment 2 tommy27 2015-09-25 12:34:49 UTC
many emojis never worked (see Bug 92940) but if you say that previously working emojis started to fail after being translated this could give some hint about what's not working in this new feature
Comment 3 Kevin Suo 2015-11-03 04:08:22 UTC
Confirmed with
Build ID: e5f16313668ac592c1bfb310f4390624e3dbfb75
Locale: zh-CN (zh_CN)
Win10 X86

Set to NEW.

Is it possible due to that zh_CN emoji is not fully translated so that the emoji is distabled for zh_CN when compile?
Comment 4 V Stuart Foote 2016-11-02 15:50:05 UTC
