Did you mean Alt d? In IE, Ctrl D brings up the add to favorites dialog

If I want to get the web address to put into another email I use cntrl
d and the address that is right there is the current address. I cntrl
c to copy it. I guess you could paste it anywhere you like at that
point. If I don't want to leave the current address I hit enter and I
am right back on the page.

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
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
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
