Hipchat Server -Emoticons not displaying for Mac user

We have installed the Hipchat Server on of our on premise servers. Everything is working fine for windows users but for one of our Mac user the emoticons are not displaying correctly, it is just displaying a square for the mac user, We have tried switching that user to cloud and it works fine at that time, so the issue is only on the server version .Any trouble shooting help anyone can provide, already tried the below two resolutions but this has not fixed the issue.

I have just tried this with a few users here, and it seems the Windows client is ok, but it is both Mac and Web clients (tested on Chrome) that display squares rather then emoticons.

Not just isolated to the Mac client

Most likely SSL. Our native clients are quite strict when validating the certificate chains. Is the cert authority external or in-house?
