    Alma freezes when using Firefox

    When using Alma in Firefox, only 3 or 4 actions are allowed before Alma's cursor continually spins and doesn't respond.

    After closing Alma and Firefox, other programs will not respond until a restart of the computer


    This happened due to a security software (machine's antivirus) setup.

    Add the Alma URL the security software's Safe Sites list (e.g. "", or "")
