Re: Firefox vs. I.E.

Firefox and Webvisum work fine together, but you now have to download Webvisum via the Firefox Add-Ons Manager (in the Tools menu) and not via the Webvisum website. Go to Tools > Add-Ons Manager, once the page loads, use Jaws Key+F7 to bring up the list of links on that site and go to "See more add-ons", it's the last link for me when I just did this. Once that page loads you have a search box, type in "Webvisum" and press enter. After the page loads use your heading quicknav keys to find where it says "Search results for Webvisum" or use Jaws Find and simply search for Webvisum again on that page. Below the "search results heading you find a link for "Webvisum requires restart, clickable" and underneath that the explanation " The ultimate web browsing helper for blind and visually impaired Internet users!".
Press enter on the Webvisum requires restart and allow the installation, then Firefox needs to restart and once it does you will be asked for your user name and password for Webvisum, you can check the box to remember this and once done Webvisum will always load and you will get signed in when you start Firefox.

Apart from that I agree with the opinion of others, IE is still my preferred browser, but I think it is essentials to have at least Firefox on your PC also as some sites no longer support IE well and I think everybody should have a Webvisum user name and password and take advantage of this great tool for solving captchas.

I agree that it depends on the site. However, when last I checked, Firefox would not allow for Webvisum to be installed. It gave some kind of error about the certificate not being published. I never did find a way around it.

Hello Mike,
I am surprised you did not receive a bunch of responses to this one.
I personally prefer IE. But also have FF for it's webvisum feature. If memory serves there are lots of people who prefer FF.

I'm a fairly new Jaws user. Which of these two browsers works best with Jaws? I've used Firefox for years, but With Window Eyes, the mouse keys stopped working.
