Action Script (button) failure with Firefox

Familiarizing with Adobe Animate (which does not seem to be so very different from Macromedia Flash way back when) I realized after several futile trial runs of a simple button function that the problem seems to be the Firefox, since the button worked as expected on the MS Edge. Since I have to make my mind up, if I want to continue after expiration of my 7-days-tryout-phase I wonder how reliable the (html5)-animations will be browserwise.

Hi

For HTML5/Canvas animations you wouldn't be using Actionscript, you need to use Javascript with special library modules called "CreateJS". And in that case there are processes which do not run locally. Especially if you are attempting to access data from your local drive. These are security restrictions of browsers/JS.

The question would be: How sure can I be that my Animate action scripts are working with firefox or any other up-to-date common browser (or may be do I have to test the function of the button on a server instead of my local machine)?

Apparently testing of the action script (button) with Firefox requires a server and does not work on a local machine.
