Sorry for the long response, but:
I have several machines running everything from win98 to xp sp3. Versions of jaws from 5 to 11. Most sites woulod not let me keep using ie8 so I loaded firefox. The only version of jaws that'll read firefox is version 8. So I'm forced to do everything on a 12-year-old laptop that's about to bite the dust. Gonna have to search for IE11 and see if it'll run onn my XP machine.

Suggestions--besides get with it and gget win10.

I like IE but it keeps crashing. I am using Windows 7 Jaws 16 and IE11. It crashes so many times Haven't got a clue why. Does anyone have an explanation? Thanks in advance

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.
