    The site seems to use asynchronous JS functions in a way that isn't fully supported in TenFourFox (yet). In this case the only (temporary) solution I see is to disable async functions:

    Type about:config in the URL bar, promise you'll be careful, and search for this entry: javascript.options.asyncfuncs, then set it to false. will display, but slowly and not rendered quite correctly, but usable in general.

    This works in Firefox 73 on Windows 10, but doesn't in TFF 19/20 and the latest Leopard Webkit since both do not fully support the required web technologies at this time. Both trip over this function
