Mouse over text

Hi there,

I have been reading xkcd for years and somewhat recently using Firefox on macOS (Big Sur) I don't get the full mouse over text panel on the comics. I get some of the text panel, but most of it isn't rendered. Safari works fine, and I'm fairly confident that last time I tried Firefox on Windows it also worked fine.

I'm just wondering if there is a bug on the mac version of Firefox, or if there is a setting I have wrong perhaps? Or maybe it's an issue with the website itself?

Any insight would be appreciated :)

Now I wish I had asked sooner! My mornings can go back to being a single web browser experience :D

Thanks for the addon, works a treat.
