Layers broken in Firefox 86 on Mac

Hi, in Chrome everything works fine for me. I prefer Firefox, using the current version. But none of the layers is usable for me, I just see weird colors. When I open the Radar, I see this.
Pretty similar: the temperature layer.
Same for clouds, air quality, rain ... whatever.
I tried to disable WebGL, doesn't change anything. Error console says everything is fine. I also disable all add-ons: changed nothing. Any hints what could be wrong here? I assume everything should work as expected since FF is a popular browser.
@plusterwurst Hello, I would recommend to reinstall your Firefox browser, it can happen that you have some uncommon settings on that causes Windy to be corrupted.
I have tried Firefox and everything is in order.

@korina Hi Korina, tried it with another installation of a Firefox Nightly and you're right, it works as expected. I had a look @ my about:config, and I think I found the problem:
privacy.resistFingerprinting.autoDeclineNoUserInputCanvasPrompts was set to true to avoid tracking/fingerprinting of my browser. This seems to be a needed function for the correct display of the layers in Windy. When I set it to "false" and restart my browser, everything works fine. Anyways, this is a popular feature for security-minded people and there are also canvas-blocking addons installed by many people. Maybe you can pass that on to your developers so they can see if there is way to fix that? Thank you.
@plusterwurst Hi, this settings was already reported by other users, however we currently do not have capacities to take this into account since it is quite exotic Firefox option. However thank you for your report.
