      Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      When clicking the button 'Edit in Office', e.g. to edit an excel file, the excel window opened is empty. Looking at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Installing+the+Firefox+Add-On+for+the+Office+Connector it seems that Mac should be supported?
