Re: Computer repeatedly getting freezed because of Firefox


You say you are using an older version of jaws, but use the latest version of firefox???

Now i don’t get this personally, but i suggest you either upgrade jaws or down grade firefox , which is the better option, to a version that works together nicely

Hi All,


I am using JAWS 16, Windows 10 and the latest version of Firefox.

Unfortunately, for the last few weeks, Firefox has been functioning in

a very erratic fashion.

More specifically, when I open certain webpages (news stories, for

instance) or clicking on the sign in button on any page, Firefox stops

responding and JAWS itself stops responding.


The only solution in such a situation is to restart the computer.

Firefox is my preferred browser, because I find IE relatively slower,

and Google Chrome is not accessible with JAWS, from what I know.

If anyone here has any ideas as to why this may be happening or as to

the accessibility of Chrome, please let me know.
