Ken, I agree with everything you say. But my banking stopped with the
infamous "this is undefined" error that was mentioned in the TFF blog
when it showed up first, and I just checked with FPR23, no go. OWC's
site also does not work quite right, the graphics on their front page is
messed up, although the site is useable and ordering works. I know of
the Github issue, but the things I do with it work, so no issue for me.
Your port of TFF has been my standard browser on the MBP ever since you
That said, I just watched Spacex's latest launch, flawless (Your port of
TFF, that is!).
So, thanks again,

The bank I use works great with TFF, I guess it doesn't use those web features. And amazon, ebay, youtube, macports, wikipedia, etc, etc, etc, all work normally.
