Dear sirs,

I have been a loyal longtime firefox/mozilla user going back to netscape in the 1980s. I am contemplating changing my default browser to safari and stopping using firefox.  I am a research scientist and infectious disease specialist.  My publications can easily be found by googling/searching "Stephen Beres".  I am having a difficulty that when I connect to the National Center for Biological Information (NCBI) Microbial Genomes Database (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genome/browse#!/prokaryotes/) to search genetic/genomic information for microbial pathogens relevant to my research, the page in firefox no longer displays properly  allowing me to conduct searches of the database.  This is not a problem if I switch to safari and plug in the exact same URL.  I cannot be loyal to firefox if it does not work.

Might try https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/datasets/genomes/ which seems to work. I was getting a service unavailable on the link you gave. I found search results with https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/gquery/all/?term=prokaryotes
