Problem highlighting and copying web addresses


Tom Behler
 

Hello, everyone.



This quiry relates to the recent thread on reading web addresses, but I
think my issue is different than what has been encountered thus far.



Basically, my problem is this:



When I am on a particular web site, I can initially access the URL web
address using either alt D or f6, but as soon as I start working with my
arrow keys to make sure I have focus on the address, or to actually copy the
address onto my clipboard, the address literally disappears.



At first, I thought this was a Jaws issue, in that the address is still on
the screen and simply is not being recognized by Jaws. However, I had my
sighted wife check, and she said that the address disappears from the screen
as well whenever I start working with my arrow keys.



I can gget a listing of other web addresses on the screen, but the one I
originally wanted seems to be gone.



Has anyone encountered this issue, and if so, how did you work around it?



I have found the problem with both Internet Explorer and Firefox.



I'm using Jaws 16 with Windows 7, IE 9, and Firefox 38 on this particular
computer.
