Why does Firefox hate hearts?

Firefox refuses to show the heart symbol (♥) correctly. It shows up as a straight, vertical line instead. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Whenever I'm browsing Facebook (or other websites that use the ♥ symbol, but it most frequently appears on Facebook), Firefox refuses to display the symbol correctly. It works fine in Safari. I have a Macbook with OSX 10.5, and Firefox 22.214.171.124 (should be the most recent version -- I just updated today). Is there anything I can do to make this character display properly? Its a minor annoyance, and I have at times debated whether I really want to see ♥s wherever one chooses to put them, but I figure its better than seeing a screen full of lines.
My friend also has a MacBook, using the same version of Firefox, and also has this problem. What gives?
