Re: a strange firefox problem

Well, I do find forms mode to be rather flaky at times, so I guess my advice is to work with as best as you can.

I agree that the issue seems to have gotten worse with the latest versions of Firefox, which is why I always have Internet Explorer waiting in the wings as an alternative web browser.

I'm using Jaws 17 with Windows 7 here.

Hi, I forgot to tell you that I am using jaws 13. Sometimes the Link works and sometimes it doesn't I tried it again after sending your message and it worked. Now, today it may not. Andy and Shubert

Do you have Jaws set to manual forms mode, and are you sure you are in forms mode when things get stuck?

Hi, I have the same problem but, I get stuck on a web address. I have all kinds of tabs but, as soon as I get to audible.com for example, it stays there no matter what I do,. Andy and Shubert

Yes, I have also seen this with Firefox.

You might put Jaws into manual forms mode, so that when you get to an edit field, you just hit enter, and can add the needed text, and tab to the next field from there.

At least, this is what I have found to work in these situations.

Hey guys,

I'm running jfw 17, and am having a very interesting issue with firefox.
If i go to enter a user name on a web page, i'll tab to the password field, and if i keep tabbing, it'll keep saying password edit, and won't go any further, until i press the escape key to get out of forms mode.
Any idea why this is happening, anyone ever seen this?

Cheers,
Jed
