Font issue with the downloading window


When mailspring calls the file window to save a file (download any attachments), it fails to display the fonts, and shows in squares (See the screenshot).

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Install the mailspring to eOS 6 from snapstore.
  2. Add your email account (say Gmail account)
  3. Download any attachment (say a PDF file in the attachment)

Expected Behavior

Clear fonts instead of the square boxes in the window (see the picture).


mailspring version: 1.9.2-6e14dad1 (installed via snap)
OS: elementary os 6 Odin (Ubuntu 20.04)

Additional Information

No extra settings, plugins are added.
