    You’re not missing much. It is my standard sign off “boiler plate”.

    Keep the water bottle out of the sun. When it heats up it will push out water overflowing the dish. Then at night it will suck in air, primed for the next day.

    Our 3 gallon chicken watering station can empty itself very quickly in the sun.

    Problem solved...

    Apparently a recent Firefox update reset my selection of what to do if Firefox is redirected to a URL that points to a PDF. After resetting this option to "Preview in Firefox" everything works as it did before the update.

    I discovered this when I got the same blank screen when redirected to a PDF on an entirely different page. This generalized my focus away from HMT and onto the more general "Firefox doesn't know what to do when sent to a PDF" idea. From there a bit of searching quickly located the problem.

    For users who may be having the same problem here's the procedure I used in Firefox Quantum version 68.0.1...

    Click on the Options tab and scroll down to Applications
    Locate "Portable Document Format (PDF)" and right click on it
    Select the "Preview in Firefox" option

    I’m not sure why, but this has not been a problem. The water bottle has been in the sun for a few weeks now. I go through about 1.5 L per week. The highs are around 110F and the lows are around 80F. The pan is metal and covered in about 1/4 inch of water at all times.
