IME language bar showing Japanese but won't input Japanese in Firefox

Hi, I'm having trouble typing Japanese in Firefox.

After switching input methods from English to Japanese and changing the IME options from the default Half-width Alphanumeric to Hiragana I can't type in Hiragana/Japanese. The only thing it seems to change is the space(The japanese input has wider spaces in between words). The same thing happens when I change it to Katakana.

Default Half-width Alphanumeric input

Hiragana Input

This only happens in Firefox. I tried typing Japanese on other browsers and programs and it works fine. I am currently using Firefox 45.0

Any suggestions?
