Re: Firefox 40 question

Tom and Gennie,

Control L is working fine for me with Firefox 40.0.3. I have had a couple of occasions where it didn't work for some reason, but they're few and far between. To Gennie's point about Firefox crashing, I discovered that the ads were most of the problem. I installed the Adblock add-on for Firefox, and most of my crashes went away. Occasionally a video will cause Firefox to crash even still, but it's way better than it was without Adblock. (Not to be confused with Adblock+ which I have not tried.)

Tom, I often enter a URL (or paste one) into the Windows Run box. So press Windows key and the letter r, then type or paste in the URL. If Firefox is not your default browser, the process is a little different. Press Windows key and the letter r, then type
firefox url
for instance
firefox www.google.com

There's your work around if you need it.

I can't even get it to work with one address, let alone multiple addresses.

Would be interested in any fixes people come up with.

For now, reluctantly, it's back to Internet Explorer.

Yes, Have had this problem for several days. Firefox keeps crashing and has
to restart. Control-l let me type one web address, but when I tried
control-l for another address, it wouldn't work.

Subject: Firefox 40 question

Hello, everyone.


Typically, with Firefox, I use the control L command, after which I can
paste a web site address into the edit box, and hit enter. I'm then able to
open The web site from that point.


However, I'm finding that the control L command no longer works with
Firefox 40.


Has anyone noticed this change, and are there good work-arounds?


I have gotten to the point where I actually prefer Firefox to Internet
Explorer for accessing and navigating web sites, so this apparent change in
Firefox behavior is somewhat disconcerting.


I'm using Jaws 16 and Windows 7 here.


Thank you.
