WordPress Emojis show up as browser fingerprinting and will be blocked in new versions of FireFox

The emojis show up as browser fingerprinting in several different browser extensions.

The issue lies in var d=k.toDataURL(); in the script block added by the emojis (block starts with window._wpemojiSettings).

Further, and more importantly, firefox is going to start prompting users when a page uses several methods associated with canvas fingerprinting (ref https://thehackernews.com/2017/10/canvas-browser-fingerprint-blocker.html).
