Re: Firefox 48.0 and the JAWS Cursor

Tom Behler



I will follow this thread with interest.


Currently, I have Firefox 47.01, and, at least so far, I haven’t gotten the update to Firefox 48.


I thought I had set things to automatically update Firefox as needed, but that doesn’t seem to have happened.


Will leave well enough alone, at least for now.

Subject: Firefox 48.0 and the JAWS Cursor


Hello, JAWS, Firefox users. With the advent of Firefox version 48.0, the JAWS cursor no longer reads the screen, even though, in the Firefox configuration file:


"gfx.direct2d.disabled" has a value of True.
"layers.acceleration.disabled" has a value of True.
layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled has a value of False.


Has anyone heard of a new fix to get the JAWS cursor to become accessible in Firefox again?


Thank you.
