Using UIC card swiper for text fields

Hello! I am attempting to speed up a box office process by using a UIC card swiper with our ticketing software (which runs in-browser).

In non-Firefox browsers, the card swiper, when used, puts card numbers and expiration dates right into the necessary fields to save me time from typing them. Firefox (my much preferred browser!), however, reads the swipe as a Find In Page request, even when we're clicked into the text field where the card number is meant to go.

Does anyone have an insight on how to make this work the way it does on other browsers? Thank you!
