Re: IE 11 Successfully Installed Here, Well, Sort Of

No, I haven't done this.

Question: If I do this, will I loose my internet favorites?

I have saved my favorites folder just in case, but would like to avoid how
to figure out how to import my favorites into IE again if possible.

Have you tried resetting IE11 by going to tools then options then control
tab to the advance tab and choosing either reset default settings or reset
IE11 entirely.

well, I thought IE might be thinking you want to search for an address and
thus interfering with what you want to do?

Again, I'm just trying to understand the reasoning behind certain
steps before I actually take them.

Tom, I noticed after I upgraded to IE11, the auto complete settings
wer enabled, especially for the address bar. you might try unchecking
this setting:

press alt, t for tools, o for options. control+tab 4 or 5 times to the
contents tab. press alt+i to activate the auto complete settings
button. first checkbox should be unchecked. tab to and spacebar on the
ok button.

I've unchecked all of the autocomplete settings, including the ones in
the advanced tab (found about half way down the dialog).

Hello, everyone.

As some of you may remember, I have been reluctant to move from IE
10 to IE 11, because of problems I had last summer with IE 11 in
terms of being able to enter text into text boxes on web sites that I
access.

However, since I now have been forced to upgrade to IE 11 due to no
Microsoft support for IE 10, I decided to take the leap today, and
install IE 11.

I installed IE 11 from the .exe file that I downloaded and saved from
the Microsoft web site, and the installation seemed to go well.

I also was pleasantly surprised to find that my internet favorites
had all been preserved, even though I had saved my favorites folder
as a back-up, in case something went wrong.

However, this is where the good news ends.

I'm now back to having the same text-entry problems I had last
summer. I had my sighted wife watch while I ttried entering text into
edit boxes, and she tells me that my main cursor does not move when
I try to do so. As I enter text, Jaws speaks the text, but it is not
entered into the web form. I have Jaws set to manually enter forms
mode, so I know I'm in forms mode, since I get the higher-sounding
click whenever I hit enter.

I have made sure all add-ons, extensions, and toolbars are disabled,
but so far, no joy!

Last summer when I had this issue, I worked with Freedom Scientific
Technical Support, with the Microsoft Accessibility hotline staff,
and with another well-experienced Jaws user from this list, and we
could never solve the issue.

At least I have Firefox now as my main internet browser, and that
works fine!

If anyone has any other suggestions of things for me to try, please
send them my way.

I am extremely frustrated with Internet Explorer at this point!
