Re: Firefox 40 question

Robert Logue

I seem to be having luck with ctrl+l in Fire Fox 40. I do notice that it has autofill turned on. Sometimes Jaws has trouble reading what's added when I start typing.

But, now it seems to be working just fine. I know. I'll forget about this thread and the problem will come up later.

I did make those changes to the Fire Fox configuration file that were suggested for screen reader users some time ago. Could that make a difference?

Just wondering. Are you pressing ctrl+l the second time while you are still in the edit box, or after the page you want loads.

Sometimes pressing tab moves out of the Search or enter address edit combo

box to a list of suggestions. Other times it moves to the search Bing or what ever your prefered search engine is. Somewhat confusing. Needs a manual for screen reader users.

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.
