Update on Ebsco E-book Access using Firefox

We have received this update from Ebsco Technical Support:

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of eBook PDFs not loading in Firefox 45 and above. This issue is a result of an update to the Firefox code base which is incompatible with our eBook viewer. We are working to fully resolve this issue as soon as possible and in the meantime have implemented a fix that has restored access to eBook PDFs in Firefox. A byproduct of this fix is loss of page-to-page vertical scrolling for eBooks in Firefox, though all other navigation options remain available: table of contents links, page back and forward arrows, and entering a page number into the page number box.

So be sure to use the page arrows at the center bottom instead of the scroll bars.
