Hello all,

Then surely a better-than-nothing solution, is for someone to make version 3.6 readily available for all.

Thank goodness I still have Firefox 3.6, which I will hang onto forever, if
that's the only way I can still use Webvisum. I guess the fine folks at
Mozilla really don't give a rat's ass about accessibility.

Hi list sorry to report this but, we may not ever have it back. webvisum
was disabled the other day when Firefox 5 was installed. it seems mozilla
has decided that they will now release new versions of firefox every two
months. the word on the NFB graphic user interface list is that webvisum
will likely give up trying to update it since there is likely no way for
them to ever keep up with this new timetable. Thank you mozilla for
caring so much to protect the internet from us dangerous blind
hackers/spammers. I wouldn't get my hopes up for a screen reader to have
it built in since if they can do that, the real spammers would be able to
do it to so that would defeat the whole need for capcha.

Now that the list is back online, here are some of the latest developments
in my attempts to recover the use of Webvisum. Thanks.

that one you would have to take to a group, I'd ask it on both the blind
geek zone and/or the list provided by web visum I'm having some odd
difficulties with my current system and can't get web visum to run
correctly here on my main, but it loaded and ran fine on my secondary and
tertiary computers, so I don't have a good answer for you!

sorry,

Webvisum sent me a new password; I logged in with the new password and
tried once again to install the plugin, but still I can't get it to
work--I get the "unavailable" message following the "install button"
prompt. Is there an issue with my system or browser security settings, or
do I actually need an invitation code in addition to the password? Do I
need to upgrade Firefox to use this copy of the plugin? Thanks.

there is a spot, pardon a link where you can fill out a "request" and
get an invitation to web visum, if you remember your address and sign in
password (the same ones you input into web visum so it could automatically
sign in) you can go and download it again, I would use revo uninstaller to
pull out the old web visum, and then reinstall a new copy.

or at worst case, contact me again and I will get you an invite since I
remember both my sign in and my password

Good morning. I'm sending this to you individuals because the JFW
list seems to be down right now.
Yesterday I sent this to the Webvisum Discuss listserv and subscribed
to their mailing list, but I suspect they may be very slow to respond. If
I don't hear from them in a week or so, what do I do with Web sites that
require verification? I could try Solona but not sure if that works with
Firefox, or if it can handle captchas and images as efficiently as
Webvisum. Thanks for your feedback.

Hi all. Recently I've been reading some posts regarding updating to
the latest version of Firefox, and that Webvisum hadn't released an update
for that version. For some time I've been able to use it on my current
version of Firefox 3.6. Someone suggested I download a portable version
of Firefox 5 to see how it worked and whether or not Webvisum worked with
it. Another post explained a work around for accessing Webvisum with
Firefox 5.0, by going to the install.rdf file and changing the max number
from 4 to 5. I did this and saved the change, then downloaded the
portable Firefox 5, but this created an error message in Firefox 3 saying
the file wasn't well-formed or something. Webvisum not only didn't work
on the portable Firefox, but now it no longer works on Firefox version 3,
and I also deleted the install file for Webvisum and the plugin is no
longer there.
Can you suggest a way to get a new plugin for Webvisum to download
again to Firefox 3? I'm already logged in, but can't find a link to
download the plugin. I erroneously sent a request for an invitation but
discovered that's not necessary if I know my username and password.
Thanks for your assistance.
