Trying to contact marketing@futureus.com
Received response, provided details of the bug.
The bug is being filed with pcgamer.com. Our contact provided a little context which is great:

"According to our analytics we get very few visits from the FF OS.  It will
get in the queue and get fixed, but I want to set expectations that it may
not be an imminent fix."
