I am using build 57.0 Firefox browser just released. When I click on Findmypast web hints it takes me to the usual "card type" display of hints and then asks me for my FMP account details.  When these are entered I am forwarded to the FMP homepage and NOT back to the web hints for review. I can never get back to that page in Firefox which of course negates the whole point of the hints.

If I change my default browser to Chrome then it works exactly as it used to do in Firefox by taking you to the detail of the selected web hint and then gives you the option to return to the web hint selection screen.

The build 57.0 (64 bit) works very well with everything else I use it for, could you investigate and advise please.

Once your in the browser its something that Findmypast works on. So you will want to report this to Findmypast support. They can tell you if they even support this browser.
