Steps to reproduce

After the anniversary update, it seems there is a change in the way the the character ☑/☑ is rendered. By default this character is now displayed with a blue fill-color and a different size than comperable characters, as can be demonstrated with the following example:

.demo {
color: green;
background-color: pink;
font-size: 40px;
<span class="demo">☑☑☒☒</span>

This issue also manifests itself in the sitenames in the browsertabs as can be seen in supplied attachment.

Is this by design and should we use an alternative, or can this behaviour be changed?
