You can try to run Firefox temporarily in 32 bit mode to see if that works.

You can use these steps to start Firefox in 32 bit mode:

  1. Close Firefox
  2. Start the Finder and open the Applications folder
  3. Right click or control-click the Firefox.app icon
  4. Select "Get Info"
  5. Select or Deselect "Open in 32-bit mode"
  6. Close the "Firefox Info" window # Restart Firefox
