Weird Font Issue, Joplin Unusable

OS: Arch Linux 5.16.10
Joplin: 2.6.10

I have just launched Joplin today after several weeks of using it with no issues, and have found that something strange has happened. It feels like a font may be missing.

Markdown view is completely blank, and it seems like the font used throughout the app has fallen back to a different font. This has also affected icons, with many icons missing completely. See screenshot below:
(It won't let me upload the image for some reason so I added an imgur link).

I think the fix for this may be as simple as installing a certain font, but maybe someone here can advise?

Does the behaviour persist if you switch to the light theme? does safe mode make any difference?

Just as an fyi for everyone, if you enclose your link in backticks ` you can include it in a post.

Have you made any changes to your userchrome.css file?

Welcome to the forum!

Behaviour does persist in light mode, no changes made to any css files. I literally just loaded up the app and it was like this. Makes me think it is something external like a font that was changed by an update or something?

Have you tried changing the font?
