Re: Firefox

Also, the risk with rolling back is that Firefox will be less secure. My understanding of the reason for most Firefox version updates is to maximize a secure online experience. I rarely have need of the JAWS cursor in Firefox, so this limitation doesn't bother me so far. Andre's problem appears to have had nothing to do with the version. It was a question of how to navigate long-standing Firefox menus.

Actually the major interface change happened with version 29. I've been
running version 30 and haven't had any trouble on either my laptop at
home, my desktop at home, or my desktop at work, all of which are
running JFW 15 and Windows 7. I'm on the home desktop now, and it has
not updated the FF31 yet.

It seems that many Firefox users have reported problems since
upgrading to version 30. The only thing I can suggest is to roll back
to version 29. My understanding is that the interface was changed in
Firefox 30, and so it is possible that JAWS may not work as well with
it as with earlier versions.

Having issues with FireFox. Current version is 30. Tried to hit
alt-F to
get to the menue to try and figure out how to update FireFox to
version 31.
The file menu does not open and I can't figure out how to update.

Also experiencing interruptions that cause FireFox to go silent and
unresponsive to the keyboard. Any ideas?
